7 ways to reduce the power bill

There is usually ample room for  savings. I refer to power bills of companies or institutions (regulated or deregulated):

1. Better adjusting contracted demand vis-à-vis registered ones
2. Eliminating power factor fines
3. Eliminating fines for exceeding contracted demand (ratchet or fixed)
4. Choosing the most appropriate rate structure for the consumption profile
5. Using the best connection voltage to the utility's grid
6. Transferring on-peak consumption to off-peak
7. Controlling the registered demand with an energy management system

If you would like to discover the opportunities, take the initiative to "go for it". My experience in this area tells that you will - most probably - be surprised with the results!
