APS proposes 'reverse demand response' in new demand-side management plan

Arizona Public Service this month proposed a slate of new efficiency and demand-side measures that include incentives for smart thermostats, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, electric school buses and charging infrastructure, energy storage and water heater timers.

Among the programs is a "reverse demand response" pilot that aims to address negative pricing in the middle of the day by shifting non-residential load to times when renewable energy abundant. 

The program aims to reduce the need to curtail solar during periods of negative pricing. To be eligible, dispatchable customer load must have a demand of at least 30 kW.
