Load controller

An outdoor computer installed next to a breaker panel and connected to 220-V appliances like air-conditioning units, clothes dryers, water heaters, and electric spa heaters. It measures the usage of power in the home and controls peak demand energy usage by defaulting to a preset level. As demand increases, the load controller shuts off lower priority appliances to maintain a user preset demand level.
