Real-Time Power Pricing

NPR's Wendy Kaufman reports from Seattle that Puget Sound Energy in Washington State is requesting permission to introduce 'real time pricing' of electricity. The price of electricity would be based on the time of day it's used. Rates would be higher during peak hours in the morning and evening and lower during mid-day and late at night.
