Energy: Cost Savings - Episode 1/4
(simple, easy, proven and quick to make it happen)

Companies and institutions contract demand with the local concessionaire.

The demand billed in the month is the highest between the contracted and recorded.

It is worth adjusting the contracted demand so that it becomes very close to the recorded demand, thus avoiding the payment of "idleness".

But be careful. Let there be a demand slack because it is cheaper than paying a fine for surpassing the contractual demand.

Conclusion. every 100 kW of contracted demand saved reduces 6 thousand USD per year.
