ENERGY BILLS EATING AT YOUR PROFIT MARGIN? -
Most companies running a successful business focus on "running their business", they don't realize or pay much attention on how much money they are spending on energy until its too late.
ENERGY RELATED TERMS YOU NEED TO KNOW ...
* TOU or TIME OF USE - This billing is based on the "Time You Use" your energy and when you use your energy.
* ENERGY CHARGES - These charges are usually normal and represent charges for you using the energy.
* DEMAND CHARGES - These charges are "super expensive" and represent approximately 55+% of your entire bill.
* TOU-GS-1 - Normal commercial customer under 20 kW spike - No worries yet, but that won't last long.
* TOU-GS-2 - Advanced energy users over 20kW spike but under 100 kW spike - This is where it starts to hurt.
* TOU-GS-3 - Extreme Energy users over 100 kW spike - Extreemly painful to your checking account and where you never want to be.
* ON-PEAK / MID-PEAK / OFF-PEAK - You are also being billed on what "Time" you use your energy.
Here's what SCE or Southern California Edison says ...
Time-Of-Use (TOU) is part of a statewide initiative designed to keep the electric grid reliable so everyone will have power when they need it. Unlike current energy rates, TOU rates vary depending on the season and the time of day the energy is used.
Additionally, some TOU rates are calculated based on both your "energy demand and consumption". While Demand Charges generally reflect our fixed costs, Energy Charges (consumption) reflect the variable costs you incur during the times your business actually uses available power.

WHAT ELECTRIC RATE IS YOUR COMPANY ON?
Most companies don't know or even pay attention to this "until their electric bills go up" and this is unfortunate.
TOU-GS-1 - Just starting out your business and your electricity costs are about - $250 to $1,700 + per month.
TOU-GS-2 - Been in business for over a year and its growing, the only problem is, so if your electricity bill, a GS-2 bill is the beginning of an uncomfortable relationship with your utility provider, you are paying about - $1,700 + to $6,300 + per month and you don't know why.
TOU-GS-3 - Well established business, growing all the time but so is their demand charges, you are paying about - $6,300 + to $50,000 per month.
