IMG’s first plant, Roundtop Energy, was able to qualify for both PJM regulation programs, Reg A & D. This qualification shows IMG’s assets can be competitive in the fast response power market, which places value on responding to minute-to-minute changes in load and requires a <5-minute response time. Roundtop was dispatched for 1,343 hours of regulation in 2016.
In addition, Roundtop Energy’s plant maintained a 68% capacity factor (3,964 run hours ) in 2016. Roundtop Energy’s plant utilization, as evidenced by its dispatch hours and regulation hours, illustrates the need for distributed fast response generation.
