The Ohio Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has authorized Ohio Edison Co. to begin a real-time pricing (RTP) experiment that will test customer response to hourly price signals. The program allows customers to shift usage to a lower-price period or to add usage during lower-price periods.
Participation is limited to large usage customer classes. The program rate is designed so that if a customer's actual and historical usage patterns match, the bill will be the same as if the customer was not on the RTP program. Re Ohio Edison Co., Case No. 96-436-EL-ATA, Aug. 1, 1996 (Ohio P.U.C.).
