D1: Distribution Operations Curtails Customer Load for Grid Management

A customer is enrolled in a non-price responsive demand-side grid management program (possibly in exchange for reduced tariffs). This program allows the utility to request an automated load reduction at the customer site. The customer can override the request in exchange for a possible penalty charge. At least two levels of advanced warning are envisioned:
• Predicted energy shortages (long term – 24 hours, and short term - a few hours notice – these two cases do not develop any different requirements for the AMI system, but might cause the customer to respond in different ways)
• Emergency shortage (for example, a few minutes notice with no possibility of opting out)
