Studies on Demand Response (DR) have been getting more active since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. In particular, the Peak Time Rebate (PTR) type DR, which motivates consumers by providing rewards to reduce electric power consumption during periods of high electric demand, is expected as one of the effective demand control methods, which does not impose any burden on consumers. However, there is few reports on PTR. Under the circumstances, the authors designed a PTR-DR system, and then have analyzed responses of the consumers who have been participating in the demonstrative field test in Kyushu area. In this paper, the authors present the results of analysis on the consumers responses. Moreover, the authors suggest an effective design of PTR-DR based on the demonstrative test.
