Energy consumption is the total amount of electricity used over a specified period. Demand is the immediate rate of that consumption.
Energy and demand are related like your car’s distance and speed. Measuring how far you have traveled is different than the speed you traveled. For example: Driving 2 hours at 60 miles per hour, you traveled 120 miles (miles = kWh) at 60 miles per hour (speed = kW).
The Smart Usage rate charges a lower rate for energy and adds a new demand component.
