Using Less Energy Can Help Your Enterprise Earn More 

Your enterprise has the potential to earn revenue by simply agreeing to curtail energy use during periods of peak demand on the power grid. 

It’s through a program called Demand Response and Direct Energy Business can help you manage it every step of the way—from enrollment through any curtailment events that you’ll be called upon to participate in. Our energy experts will help you ensure the program is right for you and find simple, non-disruptive ways to curtail your energy consumption.
