Shell Energy runs a Demand Response program that rewards your business for reducing the amount of electricity it takes from the grid during very high usage periods. Your business will be on call, and paid to turn off machinery or appliances, or switch to on-site generators for a period of time during these ‘events’.
We will tell you when we would like your organisation to participate, either by SMS or email, and you can decide whether you can decide whether it is suitable to participate. Alternatively, we can integrate our dispatch systems with your organisation’s onsite control systems and manage the request automatically.
Participation in the Demand Response Program is voluntary. Even with an agreement in place, you have the choice whether to participate in an event, without penalty. Payment, however, is linked to participation.
We have flexible dispatch options available, as well as operational and troubleshooting support. Participation in Shell Energy’s Demand Response program is completely voluntary – you can choose whether to participate in an event without penalty.
As Australia’s largest business-only electricity retailer, we are uniquely qualified to help your organisation with all your energy needs. For more information on our Demand Response program, visit our webpage or call us on 13 23 76.
