The PG&E ADR Program continues to grow with the changing DR market and also strives to make the program easier to participate in. To support that effort, cloud VEN solutions are now eligible for PG&E ADR incentives for sites with less than 499 kW demand per site.
This is a change from the previous policy that allowed cloud VEN solutions for customers up to 200 kW demand per site. The cloud solutions do not have to pass the stranded asset test but the project must include a pre-paid, three year cloud subscription. The cloud subscription is an eligible cost for this specific effort. Finally, the cloud VEN must still be OpenADR 2.0A or 2.0B certified.
