Texzon Utilities (TEXZON), a national energy management and procurement firm, has added “SmartADR™,” a proprietary ADR Program to its suite of services for Cities. The SmartADR Controller responds to utility-sponsored events and generates significant financial incentives through automated curtailment.
Would your driving habits change if gasoline prices hit $210 a gallon? This occurs regularly in the electricity market during “rush hour.” In some markets, prices can spike as high as 60 times the average price.
The SmartADR™ controller watches out for high prices, allowing you to avert these spikes, outsmart the market, and create huge savings and new revenue streams.
The SmartADR™ system is a proprietary, customizable solution that marries demand response and price control programs to the user’s needs. The smart controller interfaces with assets and keeps a watchful eye on market opportunities for demand response. Our system covers each step in the demand response process, including:
SmartADR™ provides seasonal, weekly, and daily scheduling controls, allowing facilities to block out days of the week or hours of the day that are unavailable for DR participation. Various prices and programs can be associated with different assets with a facility or across a group of facilities.
"We are excited to offer this seamless, simple way for Cities to participate in a demand response program and reap the financial and environmental benefits," said Steve Wilson, Texzon CEO."
Good candidates for demand response are buildings with a monthly peak demand above 200 kilowatts, regardless of the facility type.
In addition to SmartADR™, Texzon has several customizable services that would be components of a full-service energy management program for cities:
