BALTIMORE and BISMARCK – Montana-Dakota has announced the expansion of Montana-Dakota’s popular Demand Response Resources (DRR) program. The expansion of the program marks another opportunity for CPower’s nearly 1,500 commercial and industrial customers to earn revenue and support the grid.
The DRR program is an electric load response program offered to Montana-Dakota’s electric commercial and industrial customers in the states of Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. It provides businesses the opportunity to earn revenue by agreeing to reduce electricity use in response to market conditions when called on by Montana-Dakota.
“DRR has provided tremendous value to Montana-Dakota’s C&I community by providing them with revenue, resilience, and grid reliability,” said Diane Wiggins, Director of Utility Sales for CPower, Montana-Dakota’s partner in the program. Commercial and industrial customers of Montana-Dakota can enroll in the DRR program beginning in power year 2021 through 2027.
“Thanks to the overwhelming success of the program and our partnership, we are doubling the size of the program from 25 megawatts to 50 megawatts. This expansion gives many more customers in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota the opportunity to earn revenue through committed electricity reduction, assure their energy resiliency, and contribute to a stable, reliable grid for their communities,” said Jay Skabo, Vice President – Electric Supply.
