OpenADR Program Profile
SCE Capacity Biddingback to all programs
|Program Name||SCE Capacity Bidding|
|OpenADR Requirement||None for manual control, automation requires 2.0a or 2.0b certification|
|Description||The capacity bidding program allows SCE's commercial customers to bid a certain amount of flexible capacity that will called upon to shift load between 1pm and 7pm on weekdays, up to 30 hours per month. Companies get paid based on the amount of capacity offered, but must pay a penalty if they underperform their bid. It is an aggregator-based program, meaning aggregators will sign up customers, combine their load and provide it to SCE as a unified entity. A commercial building may be their own aggregator, but practically will mostly choose to work with a certified aggregator.|
