to limit eligibility to customers that use at least 600 kilowatt-hours. The PSC said the usage limitation would "restore the cost-effectiveness" of residential load management, which is designed to reduce peak demand, not energy usage.

The PSC added that the changes will reduce rates for all customers by eliminating expenses that do not produce enough savings to pass the Rate Impact Measure test of demand-side cost-effectiveness.
