Utilities use two factors – demand and usage - to design their library of rate structures. Many organizations find it challenging to choose amongst the various rate options for numerous facilities with assorted energy needs.
Summit Energy can recommend a tariff rate for your company that takes into account:
- Energy usage patterns at each facility
- Production schedule flexibility
- Risk appetite of the organization
- Ability to qualify for third-party energy supply
- Willingness to explore interruptible power
- Anticipated changes in energy load
Specific to You: By studying your organization’s historical invoices, our energy professionals gain an understanding of how your facilities use energy. Using this insight, we evaluate all tariff rate options to identify the lowest-cost solution. If we find that your facility does not qualify for preferred rates behind a particular utility, we recommend operational and capital improvements that will enable the site to access a more advantageous rate.
Ongoing Leadership: As your operations grow and change, we watch for shifts in your company’s energy usage pattern that could cause you to qualify for a different, more cost-effective rate. We look for ways to reduce your costs by closely monitoring opportunities such as market deregulation or the introduction of additional utility rate options.
Relational Strength: By maintaining close working relationships with utilities around the world, our energy professionals routinely learn about rate changes before they are officially announced and implemented. Summit shares these insights with our clients to alert and prepare them for any correlated implications or opportunities.
Available Online: To give you greater visibility into your company’s energy costs and usage, we catalogue and organize the rate structures and usage data for each of your facilities on Resource Advisor, Summit’s online energy management software.
