 Project # 3. Demand Response Pilot: Objectives
       TDUs: Demonstrate that new advanced metering infrastructure
       (AMI) technologies can contribute to higher grid performance and
       lower demand when needed through consumer programs

       Retail Electric Providers: Test marketing strategies to enroll
       consumers in programs, and determine if the customer
       experience will support demand side programs as a permanent
       part of their supply strategies

       ERCOT: Gather data for settlement process and develop added
       flexibility for the electric system during peak demand periods

       CCET: Establish role of research and development organization in
       introducing new technologies

Project # 3. Demand Response Pilot: Expectations
      – Leverages the AMR/BPL roll-out
      – REPs recruit their current customers from 10,000 - 18,000
        customer target in each area
      – REPs install two-way communicating thermostats and switches
        in 500 customers homes each area, via subcontracts with
        CURRENT & Comverge
            • Devices are addressable through the Internet (IP)
            • Load control signals to these devices via BPL
      – Customers’ load is reduced by each REP when needed
            • By Oncor & CNP during peak months
            • As desired by REP at anytime
      – Oncor & CNP provide 15-minute meter reading data to ERCOT
        at the end of each month. Data will be used to validate peak
        demand reductions
