The Duquesne Light Energy Exchange provides the communications interface and load management tool that allows eligible customers to lock in day-ahead or same day financial incentives for curtailing usage during identified peak periods. Phase I of the program is available to all medium and large business customers who are willing to reduce their load by a minimum of 500 kilowatts. The Exchange is open to commercial and industrial customers located in Duquesne Light’s service territory, which includes most of Allegheny and Beaver Counties. Customers may achieve energy demand reductions either by curtailing electrical load or running their own generator. The Duquesne Light Energy Exchange is the key to prompt customer communications with Duquesne to take advantage of this new Demand Side Response Initiative.
