Demand Response Pilot Goals

(June 1, 2010


October 1, 2010)

Assess the impact of multiple levels of enabling
technology combined with different dynamic pricing
rates on a customer’s energy consumption.

Determine if enough peak energy shifting can be
achieved to delay capital investments in incremental
generation sources.

Determine program impacts on energy conservation.

: Guiding Principles

Demand Response (DR) results will be obtained through customer
empowerment.

OG&E will not utilize any direct control of customer equipment or appliances.

Customers will be provided time differentiated pricing and be allowed to choose
their balance of cost versus comfort.

Enabling technology will be provided to customer at no cost.

The sample will reflect the demographic makeup of OG&E’s customer
population.

OG&E Customer Reaction

Customer’s reactions to OG&E’s program has been overwhelmingly
positive. During focus group sessions, almost all potential customers
ended sessions eager to sign up for the program because of the
potential benefits.


One telling story is that the camera man, who was filming the focus
group sessions, asked, “Where do I sign up?!”


As of January 18
th
, 2010, 1,112 customers have filled out a pre
-
enrollment form.


Smart Grid embraces the “Three A’s”. Awareness which

promotes Attention which may prompt Action.
