DSR Working Group Meetings
The Demand Side Response Working Group, which was originally created in 2001, was recently reconvened by Commission order. By that order, the Commission initiated an investigation into reasonable, cost-effective programs that electric distribution companies, electric generation suppliers, energy services providers and other stakeholders can implement to help retail electric customers conserve energy or use it more efficiently. This investigation is also to include an analysis of needed advanced metering infrastructure and appropriate ratemaking mechanisms that may remove any barriers to the development of energy efficiency, conservation and demand side response.
