OG&E Uses Time-Based Rate Program to Reduce Peak Demand

Recovery Act Smart Grid Program recipient Oklahoma Gas & Electric has successfully deployed its first consumer behavior study as part of its Smart Grid Investment Grant project.  The consumer behavior study provides a select number of customers with smart meters, time-based rates, and various forms of customer systems (e.g., in-home displays, programmable communicating thermostats, and/or web portals).  The purpose of the study is to determine if these customer-focused services will help to achieve demand-side objectives such as peak demand reduction and/or electricity conservation.
