Higher summer temperatures can mean higher energy bills and cause an extraordinary strain on the electrical grid. This can lead to a greater risk of grid emergencies and power outages. But it doesn't have to be this way.
During a grid emergency, businesses in SDG&E's service territory can participate in the Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP). By joining ELRP, businesses help support the grid when it's facing extra strain and can get a bill credit for their participation. ELRP is a flexible way to get incentives for using less energy.
Participating in ELRP allows qualified businesses to contribute to stabilizing the grid and reduce the risk of issues without worrying about any financial penalties.
