Commercial and industrial energy consumers today face ever-changing utility tariff rate structures and the challenges presented by these erratic charges. Unpredictable energy costs not only impact a company’s bottom line but create uncertainty around budgeting and profit forecasting. Furthermore, demand charges can be significant—at times more than 40% of a facility’s energy bill. A recentDepartment of Energy study indicates that in 2018 commercial and industrial (C&I) energy users in the US spent over $60 billion on these additional costs.
Energy consumers often feel that they have little control over the demand rate charges that inflate their
bills. They lack data, which leaves them in the dark as to when and why they’re being charged. Delayed
billing compounds the issue, since invoices don’t arrive for 45 to 60 days following a demand event.
Without a process in place to audit utility bills, validate usage charges, and contest unwarranted costs,
many energy consumers overspend by blindly paying the bill.
