Description: Demand Response – Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) in Riverside County, CA has enrolled multiple facilities in a Demand Response (DR) program. Shutting down major electricity-using equipment (e.g., pumps) during times of peak demand reduces energy use, reduces emissions from peaker plants, alleviates stress on the electricity grid, and, in some cases, eliminates the need for grid expansion.
Goal: Use demand response: Decrease electricity use during peak demand periods.
Measurement: Electrical load during peak demand periods
