The PSEDR program is a year-round program, under which customers will be paid for agreeing to reduce usage a maximum of 20 times of 6 consecutive hours or less over the course of a year. Customers are given as much notice as possible but will not be given less than 90 minutes notice that usage should be reduced. Because of the higher number of possible curtailments, customers will be paid a higher amount than they would under the PSDR program.
