    • Demand response Reducing electricity use and harmful pollution by rewarding customers
    • Extreme temperatures increase the need for heating and air conditioning, which can create stress on our power grid.
    • During these times, supply of electricity may not be able to meet demand, which can result in higher energy prices and costly blackouts.
    • Instead of firing up another polluting power plant, demand response programs offer a clean and quick, alternative way to keep the lights on.
    • Demand response companies react by requesting enrolled homes and businesses to voluntarily conserve energy in exchange for compensation.
    • Smart sensors “know” to turn off pre-approved appliances, like swimming pool pumps and defrosters, and temporarily cycle A/C units on-and-off to conserve energy.
    • As homes and buildings across the region respond, electricity use drops.
    • As a result, the power stays on without the need for expensive, polluting power plants.
    • At the end of the month, customers see savings on their electricity bills, and can receive additional payments for their participation in demand response.
    • In the end, demand response is a triple win: savings for customers, lower costs for electric utilities and cleaner air for all.
