Defining Permanent Load Shift (PLS) TES

Pay up to 15 percent less for your electricity by shifting your cooling load to off-peak hours.

Looking for ways to lower your company’s electricity costs? Our Permanent Load Shift-Thermal Energy Storage Program offers you up to $1.5 million in incentives plus ongoing bill savings, simply for managing when you use energy. Shift part or all of your building’s cooling needs to off-peak hours when electricity rates are lower. Then store your energy in a cold water or ice tank, and use it during expensive peak demand hours. Thermal Energy Storage can help you earn credits toward Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, and achieve your energy management goals, all while helping make the grid more reliable.
