Smart grids aim to integrate recent advances in communications and information technologies to renovate the existing power grid. In smart grids, consumers can generate energy and sell it to the utilities. Moreover, they can avoid consumption during peak hours which helps reducing the peak load on the grid. Energy-aware homes can aid consumers to manage their demand and supply profile. In this paper, we propose Appliance Coordination with Feed In (ACORD-FI) scheme for such energy-aware smart homes. We show that ACORD-FI decreases the cost of energy consumption of home appliances, significantly.
