Weather can really stress the electrical grid. For instance, during extreme heat waves or cold spells, air conditioners and heaters turned on full blast must work harder to compensate for the temperature, humidity, wind and sun when demand is at its highest. For your energy provider to maintain system stability during times of peak energy use, they may occasionally ask you to change your normal energy consumption to help alleviate the load on the grid – this is called Demand Response. Since we know exactly how your home responds to the weather, we minimize your discomfort while we manage this increase in demand to help keep costs low during these expensive peak times. Working together with leading Utilities and energy providers, Connected Savings provides our intelligent Demand Response to customers located in their service areas.
