It is more cost effective for electric utilities to reduce load on the electric grid than to build additional generation and transmission capacity. Utility accounts that are willing and able to reduce electrical load when the electric grid is seeing high load, such as a hot summer day, are paid to reduce their electrical load. The program is called Demand Response and vendors who provide this service are called Curtailment Services Providers (CSP). The Commonwealth has put a statewide contract in place for the use of state agencies with a CSP.

The Demand Response Contract was written to allow other Public Bodies and Universities access to the Contract at their discretion.
