How to Maximize Demand Response Participation in Texas and Arizona

Demand response (DR) benefits are many and include utility rebates to offset controls and upgrades, and the lowering of CO2 emissions through participation in these programs which in turn helps the grid and leads to more renewables.

In this webinar, you will hear from industry expert Ron Rau on how you can promote these programs and engage an internal supportive ally/allies within your organization.  With multiple years of experience previously with Limited Brands as VP Store Operations, Procurement and Maintenance, Ron will provide a unique perspective bringing in his vast experience with store and facility maintenance, energy services, non-merchandise procurement, retail operations and lifecycle management.  There are several key steps required to evaluate, contract, test and ensure your facilities are ready to participate with February 1 program contracting, so the timing is perfect to begin this process now.

You will also learn:

  • How to build and sell the business case internally from a financial perspective and get ahead of program deadlines
  • How CPower can help you navigate the nuances of the multiple DR programs in the Texas and Arizona markets, and markets relevant to your locations - and earn revenue from your energy assets.
  • How you can scale demand response across a diverse portfolio with multiple legacy, BAS systems to maximize savings.
  • How to obtain an assessment of your entire energy and facilities equipment portfolio from Phoenix Energy Technologies to understand how to best capitalize on DR programs available.

Come prepared for an informative session and get your questions answered in our live Q&A on how to get started in planning for your energy demand management needs. Register for our webinar today!
