How does Demand Response help the environment?

Imagine you're an airline passenger and the flight is overbooked. The airline will offer you an opportunity to wait for a later one and compensates you with a free ticket or maybe a free night in a hotel. Now think about the energy grid and imagine electricity demand is expected to exceed supply.  What if you were offered an opportunity to lower your energy consumption and get compensated for it?

It would make little sense for an airline to add a flight for a handful of passengers or, in the case of electricity, build another power plant. It is much better, both for the environment and economically, to lower electricity usage when energy demand exceeds available supply, than to turn on the dirtiest, most expensive electrical power plants to meet the demand.

So why not offer consumers an incentive to cut their energy use in response to extreme demand circumstances?

That's exactly what Meltek does and you can learn more about it by subscribing to us or scrolling down below!
