Wouldn't it be cool to get an email telling you electricity rates are about to go up, so you'd better run the dishwasher right away? Or they're about to go down, so you can plan to do a big pile of laundry? And then have your electric bill be lower at the end of the month because you used more electricity when it was cheap and less when it was expensive? The Community Energy Cooperative, an initiative of the Center for Neighborhood Technology, recently piloted an hourly metering scheme, and a new program will be starting soon.
