1. An energy optimization system comprising:

  • (a) frequency meter;

    (b) control computer; and

    (c) switchgear having electrical power grid input and customer load output connections;

    whereinsaid frequency meter monitors the power generation grid frequency of electricity supplying said switchgear electrical power grid input;

    said control computer activates said switchgear based on said power generation grid frequency obtained from said frequency meter;

    said switchgear controls electricity transfer from said electrical power grid input to one or more customer loads connected to said customer load output;

    said control computer operates under control of software that is optimized to reduce said switchgear activations when said power generation grid frequency is below a nominal grid frequency and said software is optimized to increase said switchgear activations when said power generation grid frequency is above said nominal grid frequency.
