Relative energy costs

Generally good decision making is achieved and maintained by comparing available alternatives.

Below is a list of those that deserve to be explored.

1) Waste reduction
2) Eliminate power factor fines
3) Adjust contracted demand to the registered demand
4) Compare available tariffs
5) Identify when to close power price for future delivery
6) Reduce recorded demand using load control
7) Identify cost arbitrage opportunities among energy sources
8) Install local generation and/or cogeneration
9) Replacement of old equipment with more efficient ones
10) Establish rewards in energy: goals x bonus
