Reduce energy spend by shifting time of use to avoid expensive peaks
Demand-side management means reducing the power that your building uses (demands) at certain times of the day. Demand charges can account for 30-50% of your monthly electricity bill, so controlling demand could save you a lot of money. For example, while your base kWh rate might be $0.10, the single highest 15 minute usage could be charged at $20.00/kW!
There are a few times that you are charged for high demand:*
*Demand charges vary by utility provider

When you are ready, you might also choose to participate in an ADR program. Some utility companies give rebates to facilities who commit to automatically reducing loads during key times. Verdigris can help you make a smarter ADR plan by finding the best loads to shed.
