Demand Response

Through Demand Response programs and for a financial incentive, when the TVA system is strained—like during extreme weather or energy emergencies—qualified participants will curtail energy usage by lowering voltage or perhaps switching off plant processes.

How Demand Response works and what’s in it for you.

The Demand Response program works with our customers and partners on their power contributions, providing TVA and the seven-state region with a flexible backup power solution.

Demand response: good for the Valley, good for your bottom line.

Interruptible Power

EnergyRight offers incentives for participating customers who agree to allow TVA to request a suspension of a portion of their energy load, with up to 30 minutes notice, during times when the power system is constrained. IP5 participants receive a monthly demand credit in exchange for load curtailment. IP30 participants receive a monthly demand credit along with an event-based energy credit in exchange for load curtailment.

Peak Power Partners

EnergyRight offers this program through Enel X. Program participants receive a monthly financial incentive for reducing their power usage during times of energy system need.

Voltage Optimization

EnergyRight offers two programs where local power companies endeavor to operate their distribution feeder voltages in the lower half of the ANSI standard, thereby reducing energy consumption in exchange for a monetary incentive.
