This revenue has been out of reach for all but the largest players, since most users are too small or aren’t available for enough hours every day of the year.
When the electric grid is stressed, we send a signal to our partners and they reduce load through their connected homes and business - thermostats, EV chargers, and the like.
Combined with other participants, those resources form a virtual power plant. Grid operators pay Leap's virtual plant just as they do for traditional power plants, and Leap pays its partners for participating.
Local load is more valuable to the grid than regional, and separate loads from single participants rarely qualify as a wholesale product. Mixed and matched together they become a valuable resource.
