Analyzing the trends in electricity prices.

The Rise of Energy Management Programs

One of the reasons that electricity prices are going up is because utilities are more frequently engaging in programs to manage the state’s energy usage. These programs aim to encourage everyday people to use less energy during peak hours when the cost of electricity is at its highest. By doing so, utilities can avoid having to create more expensive (and polluting) sources of power. It’s what’s needed in order to meet the demands of our energy needs over the coming years. 

Energy management programs come in various forms, but they all share a common goal: to reduce energy consumption during peak hours. Some programs, like OhmConnect, reward people for conserving energy by paying them cash incentives for reducing their electricity usage during peak hours.
