Irrigation Load Control

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).

    Fast Facts
    Eligible customers: Rocky Mountain Power customers served on Schedule 10.
    Program period:

    Week including June 1 through week including August 15. (voluntary events may be dispatched separately from June 1 through September 30).

    Program hours: Weekdays, 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mountain Time.
    Duration: Events are typically four hours (they can range from one to four hours), with a maximum of 12 event hours per week and 52 event hours per season.
    Dispatch notification: 4 hours minimum.
    Compensation: Compensation is determined by multiplying the average load (kW) a customer can reliably shut-off during program hours by the incentive rate, adjusted for event participation. Each customer’s incentive rate is set by his or her average expected kW per pump.

    We understand that dispatches later in the evening are more burdensome on operations. To compensate for that additional evening hour, we are offering a 20% bonus in the event that a dispatch lasts until 9pm. To earn the bonus, a pump must participate in every event that lasts until 9 pm. As a reminder, your full season payment is based on each pump’s average usage during program hours, and full curtailment during events. If you foresee being unable to participate in events until 9 pm, please let us know. We have resources to assist you with participation in this program.
