Simply Energy – Demand Flex

Rewarding businesses for their power flexibility


Simply Energy’s Demand Flex programme enables its customers to be rewarded for ‘flexing’ their electricity usage.

A sophisticated technology platform, built in-house, automatically powers down or turns off customers’ load when the grid needs a helping hand and pays customers for offering load into electricity markets.The 15 MW of interruptible load provided by the programme’s 44 participants is like a virtual power station and has the potential to be a valuable tool to help meet New Zealand’s climate goals.
