BYOD Enrollment Information

Enrollment in BYOD provides customers up to three incentives: a one-time upfront payment, a monthly incentive, and credits for controlled energy exports during a defined period called a “BYOD event.”

The upfront incentive provides $100 for each kilowatt (kW) of capacity that the customer commits to making available during BYOD events. The upfront incentive is capped at $500 per customer and $1,000 for customers with low- and moderate-incomes.

The monthly capacity performance incentive provides $5 per kW of commitment capacity for the Level 1 and Level 2 riders and $10 per kW of commitment capacity for the Level 3 rider, based on a customer’s average performance during BYOD events.

Customers on the Level 1, 2, or 3 riders may also earn credits for controlled energy exports during BYOD events equal to the Smart DER Tariff Export Rider’s evening peak export rate, regardless of the time of export.
