Subject: RE: [emix] Not To Exceed

But this largely a self regulating promise.  If the cell phone companies were doing this - if you stay inside the plan - you are home free - but otherwise they surcharge you for overages at 10x the plan rate!
I'm not sure I want to perpetuate that ugly model and world.
It's OK if its purely for predicting future load patterns. 
I much prefer the reverse plan - which is you get credit back for using less!

DR – and Verification, and Verification is the conundrum. Verification is the problem because DR are is a promise to reduce load by a certain amount from an uncertain beginning end point to an unknown end point.
What about an agreement that “I will use no more than xxx” as a DR offering. It becomes entirely results oriented (good for a service). It would be more valuable if it warranted “no spikes” rather than merely total use for a [15 minute] period. It certainly would be callable.
Do we adopt this? If so,  does it look like
[emix – this is for max use]
Or does it look like
[Eitc: I will commit not to exceed
In other words, is max an EITC or EMIX thing…
