The University will participate in a Demand Response audit on Wednesday, August 17, from 3–4 p.m. Beginning at 2:30 p.m, we will reduce our electricity load to a minimum to demonstrate our ability to shed load during emergency conditions on the PJM grid. All building systems will be returned to normal operation after the audit.
For information on how these events will affect the campus and your work space, please refer to the Summer Energy Conservation website at:
The results of this audit will determine our payments from EnerNoc, our Demand Response Energy Management provider. You can help by turning off unnecessary lighting in your office and adjacent areas and by turning off or unplugging personal appliances during this event.
Additional updates will be provided through Inside JCU on a regular basis as we continue through the warmest part of the summer.
