The Load Management Program is a good-faith agreement between the Project Sponsor (a qualifying customer or its sponsoring energy services company) and CenterPoint Energy to curtail electric loads on notice.

This program is available to non-residential customers within the CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric service territory. Participants must abide by the following program rules:

  • Shed a minimum of 100 kW when called after a 30-min notification, during program events (i.e., two test events and up to four unscheduled events triggered by ERCOT level 2 events or CNP system emergencies)
  • Availability period for curtailments is limited to June 1 through September 30, 1-7 p.m. on weekdays, excluding federal holidays
  • Participants are required to be capable of curtailing at least 100 kW
  • Equipped with an Interval Data Recorder or Smart Meter
  • Requires one-year commitment
  • There are no penalties for opting out early

Customer commitment

Participating customers agree to a one-year commitment, but there are no penalties if customers opt out of the program at an earlier time. By their participation, the commercial/institutional customer commits to 2 scheduled curtailments of 1 to 3 hours duration during each year of participation, plus a maximum of 4 unscheduled curtailments of up to four hours each during each year of participation.

Minimum Funds:

Must meet 100kW requirement ($30.00x100kW) = $3,000.00



Maximum Funds:

Earn up to $30.00 per kW of verified curtailed load each year of participation.

1. Application period is closed (Availability period for curtailments is limited to June 1 through September 30, 1-7 p.m. on weekdays, excluding federal holidays)

2. Preferred Vendor/Contractor required: No preferred vendor/contractor

3. Pre-Approval Required: No

4. Pre-Inspection Required: No

5. Post-Audit Required: 

6. Average time from Application to Approval: No

7. After approval, funds typically received: No
  1. Step One: [Application](. All applications are prepared and submitted electronically by the Project Sponsor via CenterPoint Energy’s Sponsor Portal Database during an annual open enrollment period each year **Questions concerning application procedures may be submitted to the CLM program manager CNPEE@CenterPointEnergy.com.
  2. Step Two: Approval. The qualifying Project Sponsor must be registered as a Vendor of CenterPoint Energy and have on-file a valid Vendor ID #, W-9, and electronic banking information . Applications are reviewed for correctness, feasibility, and past performance in previous years.
  3. ? Step Three: Performance Period. The Project Sponsor performs annual Scheduled and Unscheduled Curtailments when notified by CenterPoint Energy.
  4. Step Four: Monitoring and Verification. CenterPoint Energy verifies demand savings from Scheduled and Unscheduled Curtailments (the “Verification Process”) utilizing the standardized PUCT M&V procedures, (i.e., based on the current Technical Reference Manual guidelines).
  5. Step Five: Incentive Payments. CenterPoint Energy pays the Project Sponsor for Scheduled Curtailments and Unscheduled Curtailments, based on the average incentive calculated over all curtailment events. Curtailments may occur during the summer peak demand period of each year, defined for this Program as weekdays, June 1 through September 30 of each program year (excluding federal holidays), between the hours of 1:00 and 7:00 p.m. As an example, a participating customer who contracted for and provided an annual average of exactly 1 megawatt (1,000 kilowatts) of curtailable power when called upon would earn $30,000 for that year (see Step Four for calculation procedures). The only exception to this payment limitation is that CenterPoint Energy reserves the right—at its sole discretion—to award bonus payments for Curtailed Load that makes up for shortfalls by other participants. The load shed for each participant will be calculated for each event using interval data to evaluate their performance. The incentive is calculated for each event based on the base rate and performance rate (if applicable). The total incentive paid at the end of the program year will be based on the AVERAGE incentive calculated from all curtailment events.

APPLY Services are not offered for this incentive. The owner/installer must do the application.

Houston provides economic grants to qualifying public, private, and nonprofit organizations. The city provides these grants to stimulate business and commercial activity within Houston. A city may establish programs to deliver loans or grants of public money, financing state and local economic development.

Who administers these development programs?

  • We may use city employees
  • We may contract with state, political, non-profit or other organizations.

This flexible law allows Houston to create development programs that align and adapt with our City. Historically, the City uses future tax growth (ad valorem property, sales, and mixed beverage tax revenues) to finance these grants.

Eligible Participants

  • Public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

Houston may use public funds, revenue our city charter permits us to collect. (Tax Revenue, Grants, Gifts etc.)

    > A group reaches out to the Economic Development Division (EDD) via our "contacts us" form (on the new website), briefly explaining their project
    > EDD emails a response: either explaining project does not align with priorities or invites the developer to present the project to EDD and fill out a Business Information Form (BIF)

  2. Stage 2
    > Developer presents the project to individuals within the EDD
    > The division scores the development using a matrix and the BIF

  3. Stage 3
    > Qualifying developments are asked to discuss ways to layer their investments with other city initiatives and plans; this phase may involve several discussions and meetings across city departments, such as:
    - The Department of Public Works and Engineering
    - The Planning Department
    - The Department of Housing and Community Development

  4. Stage 4
    > The group submits a formal application (original application)
    > If the city finds application (including financial pro-forma) aligns with city initiatives and agrees with financial assumptions then the division begins to draft an economic development agreement with City of Houston's Legal Department
