Irrigators who choose to enroll in this program can earn valuable cash incentives for curtailing electricity during peak demand periods.
Rocky Mountain Power partners with EnelX to provide an Irrigation Load Control Program. EnelX offers a pay-for-performance structure that rewards irrigators for their participation in events and their average available electricity use during program hours. This incentive comes with devices that provide real-time visibility into energy consumption. The devices allow irrigators to use EnelX’s online portal to manage their peak demand and monitor the operations of their pump(s).
