The Load Management device is attached to your home and connected to your central air conditioner, heat pump, and/or water heater.  It is used to briefly interrupt your air conditioner's cycles (the fan will still run to recycle the air in your home), heat strips and water heaters on "peak" days to reduce demand for electricity.  More than 12,000 customers are already participating in the program.
