Facilities Management

$95,000 saved


Starting in the early 1950s, this family owned business has been at the forefront of farming innovations such as in-house organic feed, cage-free hens, and sustainable practices.

Our sister company, Regatta Solutions, installed a cogeneration system in 2018 and uses the Agave Controller to operate it. A year later, Agave Systems was fully integrated.

Chino Valley Ranchers recycles materials and water, plants trees, composts, and has co-gen, but they needed a way to manage their energy usage and relate it to their seemingly fortuitous utility bills.


Chino Valley Ranchers employed the use of Agave® Analytics Suite to monitor their facilities’ energy usage, as well as the Agave® Supply Module to manage their existing cogeneration system. Shortly after onboarding, we identified inconsistencies in demand charges applied to their utility bill totaling up to $95,000 in mischarges, which was returned by the utility company after submitting our findings.

We now have an advocate watching over our utility bills. Agave® identified erroneous charges generating a credit of $95K.
