Re: [Environmental] OOPS... DelMarva Power and Thermostats

Even if it did not get colder than that, they now needed to come back from a nearly 20 degree setback. Multiply that by all the homes in the program that were turned off.

I think the point here was that the grid couldn't support the peak load at that time. Yes, they needed to come back from a lower temp, but the load from that has been shifted to a later time.

The program is voluntary, with an incentive to save the customer money with discounts. But any savings just got reduced or tossed out. Now why would anyone be willing to volunteer for the program after seeing this one example?
