Bidding Introduction

Configure your portfolio for participation using Bids.

Bids represent offers to supply energy to the market. Use the Bidding API to configure dispatch frequency, duration, and earnings to match your preferences.

A bid defines the amount of power (in kilowatts) that a meter is willing to provide for a given price (in $/kWh). Bids are structured as a supply curve covering a specific time period. You can offer increasing quantities in exchange for higher prices.

Understanding Bid Curves

A bid curve is an ascending array of price ($) x quantity (kW) pairs. Each point represents an offer to provide energy over a time period in exchange for a given price. The curve allows you to offer higher a quantity_in_kw in exchange for a higher price.
