Abstract

Con Edison performed an assessment, implemented a pilot program and full-scale rollout of this technology, which communicates with the Central A/C thermostat via two-way pager, and enables features such as confirming feedback, recordable customer overrides, monitoring and thermostat access via internet by both customer and utility, utility control of either thermostat setpoint or duty cycle limit, and collection of hourly runtime and temperature data for virtually all units. This paper presents background on the program, lessons learned, and impacts from the perspective of both the utility and the participants, including kW impacts and customer satisfaction.
