Alison, you write 

Environmentally, demand response resources are proven to cut overall demand for electricity (not just shift time of use), therefore avoiding dirty pollution that contributes to climate change. 

Your label “demand response resources”, hip marketing-speak for energy deprivation, is a bit like calling hunger a “weight control resource”. There’s no cut in demand for electricity – you just want to make it cheaper at the expense of convenience, to the point some doesn’t get used at all. In terms of overall value, that’s actually making electricity more expensive.

Isn’t it?
