The Issue

Regulators and industry officials explain the dearth of market products available to prosumers today as the result of lack of consumer interest. However, most consumers neither know about nor understand these novel technologies, products, and programs; how they could personally benefit from them; or how they could use them to help the economy and the environment. In order for DR and AS to thrive, research must occur in coordination with product development and engagement strategies.

Project Innovation

OhmConnect will expand its successful Demand Response program by cultivating new marketing channels and messaging and incentive strategies for increasing program uptake and adoption by residential users in both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged communities statewide.

Project Benefits

Greater Reliability

Reliability

This project proposes to extend the success of the EPC-15-083 grant and concentrate on achieving two main goals: 1) cost-effectively increasing user acquisition; and 2) cost-effectively increasing adoption of smart devices connected to the OC platform. By achieving these two goals, OC seeks to bring immediate relief to California grid reliability shortages by providing at least 25MW of flexible demand capacity in California in 2021, and to create a sustainable growth pathway to increase capacity in subsequent program years.
