Aggregator Managed Portfolio (AMP)

Aggregator Managed Portfolio (AMP) is an aggregator managed program that operates with Day-Ahead and Day-Of options and runs May 1st thru October 31st, but is promoted year-round. There are currently five aggregators participating in AMP for 2013-2014. At this time the AMP program is closed to new aggregators.

Each aggregator is responsible for designing their demand response program as well as customer acquisition, marketing, sales, retention, support, and event notification tactics.

Program Overview

Program Option(s)

Each aggregator offers its own program options.

Curtailment Level

Each aggregator has a contractual curtailment level specified for each month. This curtailment comes from their portfolio of customers.

Incentive Payment

Capacity and energy payments vary with each aggregator. Aggregators pay incentives to their customers based on their own agreement between aggregator and customer.

Non-Compliance Penalties

The aggregators are penalized if they fail to deliver their committed load reductions. The penalties vary based on the shortfall, with larger penalties for larger shortfalls. Aggregators determine compensation and/or penalties for their participating customers.
