Demand Response (also known as load response) involves the end-use customer reducing their demand for electricity in response to power grid needs, economic signals from a competitive wholesale market or special retail rates. Some ways a demand response resource may reduce their electric demand are by dimming or turning off portions of lighting, by turning on back-up generation or by shutting down one or more electrical processes.
