What is electricity demand and how does it effect my business?
Demand is the measure of the level of electricity your business requires at a single point in time. When your business has an immediate increase of usage, similar to a surge or a spike, the grid must be able to react instantly to the demand. Due to the spike in demand when the meter goes from inactive to heavy use, the TDSP charges for your business will be considerably higher. To avoid the spike in usage, try and disperse the amount of electricity you use at one time rather than all at once. This will help minimize your demand and lower your electricity bill. Example) A printing press should run three printers at three different times of day, rather than all at the same time to avoid spike demand.
