What is Demand Side Management?

Demand side management is the modification of a customer’s electricity usage pattern to:

  1. Reduce Peak Consumption – encourage less electricity usage during periods of peak electricity prices.
  2. Load Shifting – move the time of usage to periods of lower electricity wholesale prices such as night time, weekends, and periods of high wind power production.
