Energy Efficiency
Partner With Energy Management Firm To Implement Peak Demand Strategies

What Is It?

Energy management firms specialize in identifying energy savings strategies, including those that shave energy use during peak periods, when energy costs the most to generate. A peak demand strategy, or demand response program, is one under which a utility company offers a customer a reduced rate on energy usage in exchange for a reduction in consumption during peak hours.

Benefits

Partnering with an Energy Management Firm for the purpose of implementing a peak demand strategy is beneficial on multiple fronts: it allows the business to reduce consumption and costs while also increasing the efficiency and reliability of the grid for others.
