We offer a demand management programme for our industrial and large commercial customers connected to the Aurora Energy network.

As a participant in the demand management programme, you get access to network control forecasts to help you plan to avoid network peaks plus monthly progress reports on your plant's performance, in kilowatts and, more importantly, in dollars.

The programme helps commercial customers with connection capacities of 150kVA and above manage their electrical demand at times of peak loading on Aurora Energy's distribution network.

CONTROL PERIOD STATUS

Here is the current status of peak control hours (known as the Control Period Demand or CPD) and an indication of when controllable load (predominantly domestic electric water cylinders) is being controlled. On average, an individual water cylinder will be controlled for 40 to 50 percent of the daily and year-to-date Control Period hours.
