FAQ

What is the Industrial Conservative Initiative (ICI) Program?

The Industrial Conservative Initiative (ICI) program is a demand-response incentive program from the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) of Ontario. Its purpose is to provide financial incentives for large electricity consumers to shift their consumption to off-peak hours, reducing demand on the energy grid. You can find details on the ICI program here.

What is Global Adjustment (GA)?

The global adjustment fee is a line item on your energy bill that is dependent on your Peak Demand Factor. Class A customers have the flexibility to lower this fee by lowering their Peak Demand Factor, while Class B customers pay a set rate. Learn more about Global Adjustment in our blog.

What are Class A and Class B Customers?

Class A customers are customers that participate in the ICI program. There are specific requirements to become eligible as a Class A customer outlined here. For more information and assistance in becoming a Class A customer, reach out to us!

What is Peak Demand Factor (PDF)?

Your Peak Demand Factor is your percentage of consumption during the top 5 peak hours of your base period (May 1 – Apr 30). This is calculated by adding your total consumption during the top 5 peaks and dividing by the total system-wide consumption. This PDF is then used to calculated your Global Adjustment charge on your energy bill. By lowering your PDF (curtailing during peaks), you can decrease the GA charge. Click here for a more detailed explanation of Peak Demand Factor.

What is Demand Response (DR)?

Demand Response is an incentive program for energy consumers to curtail their demand during times of high stress on the grid. Demand Response customers get paid a recurring fee for being on standby to curtail their load. As a DR aggregator Edgecom Energy can simplify your participation and help you earn up to $60,000/MW/Year. For more information, read our blog on Demand Response.
