3 Load Management 2013 What is it? The Load Management Standard Offer Program (EnergyShare) is a performance-based demand response program that offers financial incentives for curtailing electric load when notified during the summer peak period. – EnergyShare – Load Management – Demand Response – Curtailment Program November

4 Program Eligibility CenterPoint Energy metered customers meeting kW thresholds: – Non-residential Distribution level customers – Governmental agencies (all levels) – Educational facilities (all levels) – Other not-for-profit agencies (all levels) – Industrial non-transmission class ___________________ *(Transmission customer sites are NOT eligible unless in the government, education or non-profit category) November

5 Why should you participate? To provide assistance during an ERCOT emergency situation. (EEA2) The test curtailment is an excellent way to prepare for a hurricane or disaster. The Sponsor will be compensated. A good way to exercise your equipment under load. It is a good thing to do. Help David make his goal! November

6 EnergyShare Program History Program YearMW GoalMW Actual avg avg ? November

7 2012 Results Proposed156,240 MW – 38 Sponsors – 339 Sites (meters) 52 Smart Meters 287 IDR Meters June – 134 MW Test curtailment 6/28/2012 August – 146 MW CNP initiated curtailment 8/30/2012 Total (average) – 140 MW November

8 What was new in 2012 Allowed the use of Commercial Smart Meters in program. New database – Sponsor can view results of each curtailment – Allows Sponsor to update names and phone numbers at any time – Easier to navigate New Sponsors – 17 new Sponsors 8

12 Issues – Opportunities for Improvement Speculative submittals Incorrect names, s and phone numbers Submittals less than 100 kW Submit, remove, resubmit, remove, resubmit 12

13 Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) November Federal electric reliability councils, including ERCOT, are shown in the map below. EnergyShare benefits not only the local area but also helps to lend mutual support to others served by ERCOT

14 Peak Day Generation Fuel Mix August 3, 2011 >28,000 MW delta

15 Weather Impacts on Load by customer type Customer class breakdown is for competitive choice areas; percentages are extrapolated for munis and co-ops to achieve region-wide estimate Large C&I are IDR Meter Required (>700kW) Large C&I 23.7% Residential 51.2% (~35,000 MW) Residential 27.4% (~8,500 MW) Small Commercial 25.2% Small Commercial 28.9% Large C&I 43.7% Wed., Aug. 3, :00 PM ERCOT Load: 68,416 MW Temperature in Dallas: 109° Wednesday March 9, :15 PM ERCOT Load: 31,262 MW Temperature in Dallas: 64°

16 An orderly plan to reduce load during a shortage of generation Procedures for reducing System Demand in emergency situations Provides for maximum possible continuity of service while maintaining the integrity of the ERCOT System Reduces the chance of cascading outages Outlines when and how demand (load) can be curtailed The Energy Emergency Alert (EEA)

17 Program Eligibility CenterPoint Energy electric customers and 3 rd Party entities representing distribution level or other governmental, educational, and non-profit customers. Project sponsors must have a normal aggregate peak demand of 750 kW or more, and with each participating site averaging 250 kW peaks and capable of curtailing at least 100 kW. Project Site(s) must be equipped with a CenterPoint Energy Interval Data Recorder (IDR) meter. November

18 How do I know if I am a CenterPoint Energy customer? 22 digit ESID number on electric bill ESID The 1 st seven digits identify the utility – = CenterPoint Energy If you are not sure, call David. November

19 Meter Requirements May have an IDR meter or Smart Meter to participate Cost of new IDR meter = $365 (minimum) – Additional monthly customer cost to read meter = $84 – Cost of IDR meter is customer’s responsibility Smart Meters – Itron Open Way Meter Contact Kevin to schedule an IDR meter installation November

20 Ways to participate Substantial backup generation Underutilized cogeneration capacity Blower motors as in wastewater plants Loads that can be shifted off peak for brief periods Alternative drive systems (such as steam absorbers, gas-drive motors) Unnecessary daytime lighting, air handling, elevators (limited applicability) THESE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY..ANY EFFECTIVE ELECTRIC LOAD SHIFTING CAN QUALIFY. November

21 Ways to Participate November Pipelines (alter pumping schedule) Water & wastewater (pumping/blowers) Commercial (with stand-by generators) Gen-sets and angle-drive (power substitute) Pumps and Motors (alter schedule) Electric Furnaces (slow processes) Chillers (“coast” through peaks/direct drive)

22 Curtailment Information The peak demand period is June 1 through September 30, 1-7 p.m. weekdays, excluding federal holidays. 30 minute notice for all curtailments!
