How does it work?

By volunteering to reduce usage during periods of high demand, Indiana business owners can ensure a reliable supply of power in their community and receive a monthly payment – even during months when there is no need to reduce demand.

Necessary reductions can often be accomplished by curtailing the use of nonessential equipment that allow your business to continue to operate with reduced lighting, air conditioning, or other uses of electricity.
