The Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) is a form of demand response that allows participating customers to manage their global adjustment (GA) costs by reducing demand during peak periods. Customers who participate in the ICI, referred to as Class A, pay GA based on their percentage contribution to the top five peak Ontario demand hours (i.e., peak demand factor) over a 12-month base period.
To participate in this program, your average monthly peak demand must be greater than 500kW. “Peak periods” are the days that consumers use the most electricity. There are many factors that play a role in firmly announcing a day as a “Peak Day”. Our sister-company; Edgecom Energy, has a proprietary software that can predict these peak days with a very high accuracy. To find out more, please visit their website at edgecomenergy.ca. You can also visit the website of the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) at www.ieso.ca

To know about this, it is important to understand “Hourly Ontario Energy Price (HOEP)”:
The wholesale price of electricity is determined in the real-time market administered by the IESO. All electricity consumers in Ontario pay the wholesale price, also referred to as the commodity price, except for those who have entered into a retail contract. The IESO calculates the hourly Ontario energy price (HOEP), which is charged to large consumers that participate in the market, as well as local distribution companies (LDCs) who recover it from the subset of customers that pay the market price.
HOEP is only one part of the total commodity cost for electricity. The global adjustment (GA) is the component that covers the cost of building new electricity infrastructure in the province, maintaining existing resources, as well as providing conservation and demand management programs.
In Ontario, the GA is in excess of $1B and depending on what percentage of the total electricity consumed in Ontario you are responsible for, your organization will pay a portion of this to cover the mentioned costs.
