...an Internet-based energy monitoring service that provides you with real-time -- and historical -- energy usage and demand data for your facility. This service can also be used to monitor and control stand-by generators to assure reliability.

Who can benefit?

For minimal cost, any Detroit Edison customer who wants real-time access to their energy usage data will benefit from this service. Primary Supply (Rate D6) customers are the largest group of LOAD|watchSM users. However, any business customer on the Large General Service (D4) or an interruptible rate can also benefit from this service.
