Coincident Peak and Your Electricity Costs

Jennifer Hermes

What’s driving your electrical energy spend?  It depends on the rate that you have negotiated with your utility provider.  It’s important to understand this since your electricity costs are typically six times greater than that of your natural gas energy spend.  There are typically three general components to the electricity bill: 1. Consumption Charge: Cost   …Continue Reading
