The OpenADR Alliance is partnering with Joule Assets to provide the OpenADR community with free access to their DR market analysis tools for the next 30 days. After 30 days, only members of the OpenADR Alliance will have access to the free tools.
The tools are being offered to help illustrate the value provided by OpenADR compliant products and to accelerate adoption of the OpenADR standard. Joule Assets also offers financing for solution providers that incorporate these products. The tools include: Joule’s ERA DR-Lite: Allows you to easily identify how many demand response programs your installation qualifies for and the revenue the site might earn by participating in these programs. Simply enter a site’s zip code and curtailment capability, and ERA-DR Lite will find the programs in our database that match your needs, enabling you to demonstrate the value your technology provides.
Joule’s ERA Critical Peak Pricing Calculator (CPP): Designed to analyze a site’s electric bill under the current rate schedule and compare it to the bill under the utility’s alternative critical peak pricing rate schedule. When you upload meter data, ERA CPP provides you with the ability to help customers make an informed decision on the best tariff for them. ERA CPP is currently available for the San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas & Electric service areas for most tariff options with more utilities to be added.
The tools can be accessed through the OpenADR website.
