Automated Demand Response Benefits California Utilities and Commercial & Industrial Customers



Honeywell is demonstrating, on a utility program scale, commercial acceptance of automated response (autoDR) working with Southern California Edison (SCE), Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E). Honeywell is providing a turnkey utility-style program effort to sign up and implement technology for commercial and industrial customers whose average electric exceeds 200 kW. Large-scale customer adoption of autoDR enables SCE and PG&E to initiate and automatically execute customized shedding and other strategies in response to peak event notifications or price signals. Honeywell provides all aspects of customer delivery for the autoDR program, including customer audits, installation of customer-sited automated control devices, and recommendations for optimal response strategies.

This project coincides with the California utilities?? adoption of (CPP). CPP is a mandatory tariff for new, large commercial customers that will push electric rates approximately 10 times higher during high electric days, but offers customers a lower daily rate for non-critical peak days.??
