This control device (100) receives and stores a DR command which is transmitted over an external network (90) and indicates suppressing the use of power from the commercial power grid. The DR command includes, for example, information indicating a power suppression amount, a start time and an end time. When the start time of the DR command is reached, the control device (100) instructs a power conditioner (30) to discharge a storage battery (50). The control device (100) successively acquires, from the power conditioner (30), the amount of power remaining in the storage battery (50) for which the discharge instruction was given. The control device (100) suppresses the power consumption by home electric appliances (20) in accordance with the acquired remaining stored power amount and a pre-set priority level. When the end time of the DR command is reached, the control device (100) instructs the power conditioner (30) to stop discharge of the storage battery (50).
