White Paper
Leveraging Your Generation Assets To Generate Revenue

Properly permitted, your emergency generation—EG—is both a reliability asset and a revenue generator. EG provides a great opportunity to earn revenue and save on energy costs through demand response (DR) and demand management programs.

Unfortunately, the opportunity seems surrounded by a complex and occasionally contradictory thicket of environmental regulations. The full scope and intricacies of permitting often result in misinformation, missteps—and missed revenue opportunities.

In this white paper, we will walk you through the issues that face generator usage; the 2015 court ruling that threatened to eliminate the participation of EG in demand response, and the myth that grew up around it; and how customers and companies like CPower have risen to the challenge and defined a clear path for today’s energy managers and engineers to monetize their EG assets.

We’ll also explore the CPower classification system that has streamlined the generation permitting process, and shine a spotlight on how CPower helps a customer critically dependent on generators to keep the data flowing uninterrupted. Because we want you to know: you can leverage your emergency generation assets to promote sustainability, reinforce grid reliability, and generate revenue for you.
