Monthly Bill Credits with the Base Interruptible Program

The Base Interruptible Program (BIP) offers a monthly bill credit to businesses that commit to reducing energy to a minimum pre-determined level when requested.  Monthly credits of up to $6.30 per kW are available.

Businesses with the best chance of success on this program  are ones that, during activation,  can reduce  their electric load by 15% of their monthly average peak demand - a minimum of 100 kilowatts (kW).To maximize your savings potential, we'll develop a load reduction plan by helping to determine the number of kilowatts you'll be able to reduce during an activation. 

Please note, if your business does not hit your preset amount during an activation, there is a penalty (see "Bill & Penalty Amounts" below).  On average, this program is activated once per year.
