Why was ComEd Real-Time Prices Toolbar created?

The ComEd RTP Toolbar was written to promote real-time pricing rates as a means to help willing customers save money and help utilities better manage the grid. High prices for electricty usually are a result of transmission or generation problems. Customers that respond to the high prices by reducing load, help keep their bills low and help the utility respond to a problem. Average rates and time of use pricing do not provide proper response to system problems. Real-time pricing does. As a utility employee for 31 years, I understand the problems and want to promote the use of real-time pricing rates.

What's next for ComEd Real-Time Prices Toolbar

Keep the add-on up to date with changes to the real-time pricing rate. Daily monitoring of backend software for problems getting correct data. Additionally, I would like to someday offer a toolbar that combines the real-time price with the actual electrical use, giving a total cost of electric use in real-time. Please consider making a contribution to support this effort. Thank you!
