Transform Every Customer into a Demand Response Source

More and more, utilities are choosing demand response (DR) as a way to balance grid operations, lower energy prices for consumers, and integrate renewable resources like solar power.

- New customer-facing technologies
- Regulatory support for dynamic rates
- Consumer adoption of connected devices

To get the most out of their DR programs, utilities need to employ a comprehensive approach based on three key strategies.
