Idaho Power RFP: Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) ProgramIdaho Power

Posted February 2, 2023

IPC is seeking proposals from vendors in the demand response industry to add a BYOT option to IPC’s existing residential AC Cool Credit program. IPC’s preference would be to receive proposals containing optional levels of service and costs from which to choose, ranging from minimal required services (listed below) to a full turnkey solution. The primary focus is on a residential customer solution, however IPC would also welcome proposals related to a small commercial customer BYOT solution. While open to all proposals, IPC is most interested in a program where IPC would manage customer marketing, enrollment and incentive distribution, and the successful partner/vendor would manage verification of thermostat participation reporting and the communication to thermostats during events.
