Save money with the Capacity Bidding Program

Make a monthly pledge to reduce your energy use and save. When electric supplies are expected to be low, we’ll call on you to reduce your consumption by the amount you pledged at the beginning of the month. If your pledge goal is met, you’ll receive a payment.


Capacity Bidding Program (CBP) is managed by aggregators and operates with two options:

  • Day-Ahead Option: You get notification to reduce energy 3 P.M. the day prior to the event
  • Day-Of Option:  You get notification to reduce energy two hours prior to event  

The program runs May 1 through October 31, but is promoted year-round. Even with numerous aggregators already participating in CBP, enrollment is open for new aggregators.

Each aggregator is responsible for designing their own demand response program as well as customer acquisition, marketing sales, retention, support and event notification tactics.
