The PRLC has been around for over 5 years now. It
was founded in 1999 by participants looking to increase participation
of demand response resources in wholesale markets. Customized Energy
Solutions was one of the founders of the PRLC. Mr. Aaron Breidenbaugh,
who was the original Executive Director of the PRLC is currently
Demand Response Program Coordinator for NYISO.
Currently Rick Mancini from Customized Energy Solutions
is the Executive Director of the PRLC. Customized Energy Solutions
provides the administrative and regulatory support for the PRLC.
Since 1999 the membership has fluctuated to reflect
the market conditions and interest of companies in the Demand Response
initiatives. The PRLC has had more than 20 members contribute to
the furthering of the cause of demand response. This partnership
helped in introducing and establishing the various demand response
incentives in both NYISO and PJM ISO. Currently the PRLC has 8 active
members including LSEs, Technology Providers and Environmental Groups.
If your organization has a stake and leadership in
the development of better energy markets and an increased role for
demand response in wholesale energy markets, we would like to invite
you to participate in the PRLC.
The PRLC members expand the opportunities for demand
response participation in the developing RTO run wholesale markets
and help expand the market for your products and services.
Members of the PRLC are entitled to regular updates
on the development of rules impacting demand side response within
the ISOs served by the PRLC (currently PJM and NYISO). These updates
would be provided by means of email summaries and question and answer
