Summary:

FirstEnergy designed a consumer behavior study (CBS) to inform the development of demand response programs that could be deployed to decrease the state of Ohio’s system peak demand and achieve other goals, such as reduced electricity usage at times when supply prices are high or system reliability is in jeopardy. The focal point was to quantify how residential customers respond to a monetary inducement (Peak Time Rebate (PTR)) to reduce load during pre-specified hours (events) with a day’s advance notice.
