Smart Demand Control
Peak demand management does not necessarily decrease total energy consumption, but could be expected to reduce the need for investments in networks and/or power plants to meet peak demands. On average, in California, charges for peak demand may account for between 40% to 70% of the total annual bill. The highest percentages occur for accounts that have high daytime peak demands but low kWh usage (e.g., inefficiently air conditioned office buildings).
