UCEP can help assist and lower your peak demand, which could result in savings of up to 10% on utility charges.
Annual peak demand is the maximum demand required to operate your business over the last 12 months. To bill the demand charges, your Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) uses the higher of two figures — either 80% of the annual peak demand, or the current month’s demand.
Demand varies by consumer and time of year. To record demand, a special meter IDR meter tracks the flow of electricity to a facility over a period (usually 15-minute intervals). The 15-minute interval with the highest demand is recorded and reflected on your monthly bill.
While there are very strict rules and regulations to follow in order to participate in state-run energy efficiency incentive programs, we can help to determine if any of them fit your business.
In our company’s experience, many companies end up being denied these funds simply for not following the proper guidelines. Let UCEP help you through the process!
We work closely with our customers to ensure that we identify and take action on any savings or refund opportunities. And we do the “heavy lifting” at no cost to the customer.
Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen how utilities, retail electric providers and some third parties provide these services and just bill the customer the way they see fit — instead of reviewing all the scenarios that would benefit the customer. (Of course, this would be taking money out of their own pockets.) In fact, in a recent study conducted with over 300 commercial clients, only four of them were even aware that these opportunities existed.
