PGE power's unit wins tender for negawatts
March 7, 2013
Power group PGE's unit PGE GiEK won a tender for reducing energy demand on request of power grid operator PSE Operator, with the price tag of PLN 750 for each MWh reduced, the operator said on its website.
"The first provider of so-called negawatts . . . will be PGE GiEK," PSE said.
"PGE GiEK filed an offer for reducing demand in the frame of two out of eight different packages available," the statement read. "In both cases the bidder offered a sum of PLN 750 per each MWh of reduced demand."
The contract will be signed after a 10-day period, during which appeals can be filed, the operator said.
Reducing demand is one of the tools protecting the national grid against extraordinary distortions and can be also used as an element helping to optimize costs of electrical energy production in the national grid, PSE said.
