Author:

Abstract:

This document describes how the smart grid enables active participation by consumers. In the smart grid, consumers will be an integral part of the electric power system. They will help balance supply and demand and ensure reliability by modifying the way they use and purchase electricity. These modifications will come as a result of consumers having choices that will motivate different purchasing patterns and behavior. These choices will involve new technologies, new information about their electricity use, and new forms of electricity pricing and incentives.
