The Commercial Load Management (CLM) Program is designed to reduce demand during the summer peak period in the Oncor service territory in a cost-effective manner and assist in reaching the demand savings goal established by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT).

Service Provider Eligibility

Eligible service providers will identify electric load at commercial customer facilities served by Oncor that can be curtailed during the summer on-peak hours. Transmission-level, for-profit customers are excluded from the program. Service providers include:

  • National or local energy service companies
  • Retail electric providers
  • Individual customers that identify curtailable load in their own facilities

Project Eligibility

All projects must meet the following requirements:

  • Each project must include a total estimated demand savings of at least 100 kW during the summer peak period (which consists of the hours from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., during the months of June, July, August and September, excluding weekends and Federal holidays)
  • Each project may include multiple electric meters at one or more customer facilities served by Oncor
  • The curtailable load that is being used in a project will not be used and counted in any other curtailable load or demand response program during the duration of this program
  • The curtailable load must produce savings through an interruption of electrical consumption during the summer peak period and must be available for the entire summer peak period

How Can I Participate?

To participate in the CLM Program, service providers must make application to the Program and provide a completed Agreement.

To receive incentive payments, the demand savings must show a reduction in electric demand, which is determined through a verification process where Oncor reviews data recorded on electric meters and calculates the amount of demand savings achieved.
