For years electricity companies have offered lower prices to customers that could use electricity in off-peak periods of the day. For large commercial and industrial customers the lower energy cost was offset by a 'Demand Charge'. Demand is measured and charged in ½ hourly slots.
Utility Technology has developed controllers that can monitor and control demand. A target level is set in the controller. If during a ½ hour period it calculates that demand will exceed the target level by the end of the ½ hour, it will open a switch that will take off an electrical load in the building, without you even noticing. Utility Technology Limited can help you to lower your demand by supplying microprocessor driven equipment and/or software that will predict the demand and automatically turn selected loads off if a peak is going to occur; so the more expensive peak charge is avoided. This equipment is known as a Demand and Load Controller.
