Peak Load Management
Did you know that your monthly energy bill includes up to a 15-20% capacity charge based on your energy consumption? This charge is based on your usage during the top five peak demand hours from the previous summer. Since this charge is not itemized, many businesses don’t know how or when to reduce their energy consumption.
What are ‘peak demand’ times?
During the hottest times of the year, when your HVAC system is working its hardest, utility companies determine time intervals where the energy demand for a given locality is at its highest rate.
If your building is pulling a lot from the grid during these times not only do you pay for the energy demand at that time, but you are assessed an annual charge in the future that’s based on your building’s demand during those peak demand times.
