SRP Demand Management
SRP Demand Management, Ability to Stabilize Energy
The concept of demand management is to utilize an amount of energy required to run a home. In addition, this concept provides an opportunity for the house’s power to be used more efficiently, resulting in a stabilized use of energy. While avoiding peaks and valleys of unstable electric use, one may find that a significant amount of money has been saved. Furthermore, the concept of SRP’s demand management protects your wallet and most importantly our ecosystem.
What Is Demand vs. Consumption?
The difference between demand (KW) and consumption (KWH) is vital to your choices in reducing your energy costs. A simple way to see the difference between demand and consumption is by considering the following example.
LIGHTING EXAMPLE: One 100-watt light bulb burning for 10 hours consumes 1,000 watt-hours or 1 kWh. The entire time it is on, it requires or “demands” 100 watts or 0.1 kW from the utility. That means the utility must have that 0.1 kW ready whenever the customer turns the lamp on.
