Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) - Energy+ Inc.

Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI)

The Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) provides an incentive for eligible large electricity customers to conserve electricity. Participants are able to reduce their Global Adjustment costs, based on their ability to reduce their demand, during five top peak demand hours determined each year. The better an ICI participant can forecast the top five hours of peak demand and shift their electricity usage accordingly, the more they will be able to benefit from the ICI program.

Customers that opt-in to participate in ICI will be billed the Global Adjustment as a Class A customer, effective with electricity usage as of July 1.

Program Eligibility
