19 Feb Are your company’s energy bills higher than they should be?
Do you ever get the feeling that your company’s energy bills are way too high?
Do you keep repeating yourself that there’s nothing you can do to reduce your company’s energy bill?
Have you thought about ways to cut energy costs but have no clue where to start?
With energy becoming more expensive and companies relying so much on it, it’s normal to feel powerless in this matter. Until now, businesses contracted an electrical utility and used as much energy as needed. At the end they paid the bill without understanding the information about their usage. This lack of detail on energy bills don’t allow managers to see if they are being efficient or if they can take measures to lower costs.
With this in mind, we have some good news :
Yes, there’s a possibility that the invoices reflect a mismatch with the contracted load. It happens, but you can fix these mistakes and save your company unnecessary costs. First you need to detect the anomalies in the invoices and then contact your utility company to get compensated.
You might be paying a penalty due to excess reactive power (that you may have had no idea even existed). Governments have applied measures like extra charges to foster efficient electricity usage along with reducing CO2 and Carbon emissions. To avoid these penalties, watch out for the minimum power factor required or check the performance of the power factor correction installations.
So, here’s where to start cutting energy costs: start monitoring energy usage. Once you’ve got a clear picture of your current energy usage situation, establish an actionable plan and bring those numbers down. The time has come to take this essential utility and make it work for you as much as possible – even financially.
