Cooper Power in-home demand-response device
By Anthony Capkun
Cooper Power Systems introduced an in-home, peak load indicator; the wall outlet-sized, plug-in indicator—developed in cooperation with Delaware Electric Cooperative—employs coloured LEDs to notify customers when a peak power use period is approaching or underway. Consumers can then choose to reduce consumption. Using Cooper’s own Yukon Advanced Energy Services Platform, the in-home indicator receives hourly signals from the utility to confirm continuous communication.
