Control Peak Demand and Deliver Affordable Energy

The more informed you are about electricity consumption, the more you can deliver consistent, affordable energy to your customers. Our Demand Response (DR) solution helps you effectively monitor usage and control peak demand.

Our solution

When your customers know their usage patterns, they can make simple changes to conserve electricity use. Our DR solution gives you the data to schedule and manage load-shedding programs and reduce production costs. And it helps you provide your customers with the information they need to manage their choices and purchases. It can also help shift things like air conditioning, pumps, heat pumps, water heaters and irrigation systems to off-peak hours. Ultimately, you can pass on the savings to customers by lowering prices for off-peak power usage.

You can deploy a DR solution anywhere over the FlexNet® communication network. The solution uses industry interoperability protocols,  integrating easily with existing utility systems and operations including:
