The On Demand Savings (ODS) Program was an 18-month pilot program that worked with commercial and industrial customers to better understand and manage on-peak summertime demand. The goal of the program was to see if customers could reduce on-peak demand through in-house programmatic and manual interventions when assisted by program experts, software tools (including a real-time energy dashboard), and financial incentives.
