Homeowners, Businesses Can Help During Peak Electricity Use
February 13, 2023 8:00AM EST
NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – AEP Ohio and Ohio Edison work to distribute electricity to your home and business.
They also work to curtail some of that usage at peak times as part of a Demand Response Program.
Peak demand is reached during hot summer weather or even during the recent Christmas cold snap.
The utilities present a list of customers willing to power down and run a generator, for example.
That gives the regional power grid organization PJM Interconnection a better idea of where to distribute the power they have.
PJM oversees the power grid in 13 states including Ohio
Interested homeowners and businesses should contact their utility.
