Get Ready for Peak Demand

Ready for Pea Demand

Are you looking for ways to reduce your organization’s operating costs? As the long, hot days of summer approach, there is one particular hour on one specific day that deserves your attention. That hour is known as peak demand, and your energy consumption during that hour substantially impacts your organization’s energy expenses.

Electrification Could Cause ‘Double Trouble’ for Businesses in the Northeast

Taking advantage of upfront incentives from government and utility programs, businesses in the Northeast are rapidly adopting electric technologies for buildings, industrial processes, and vehicle fleets, reducing their dependence on fossil fuels. This shift—primarily driven by the need to enhance operational efficiencies, achieve sustainability goals, and comply with evolving regulations—is transforming how companies approach capital planning and energy consumption. Despite the reduced upfront costs and promises of technological advancements, this growing reliance on electricity can lead to huge increases in operational expenditures (OPEX) due to ‘double trouble.’ This article explores the concept of ‘double trouble’ and shows how strategic implementations of solar and energy storage solutions can help control these costs while enhancing the sustainability benefits of electrification.

Empty Buildings?

The commercial real estate industry is in uncharted territory. Hybrid and remote work, layoffs, and volatile interest rates are resulting in historic highs for vacancy rates and ongoing occupancy losses. The struggle to fill empty offices is a national phenomenon.

Minimizing ‘Double Trouble’ When Powering Sustainability

With their ongoing commitment to sustainability, universities and colleges set ambitious goals to reduce their carbon footprints. This path to decarbonization requires a significant shift towards electrification which is the replacement of technologies that directly use fossil fuels (like natural gas, oil, and coal) with those that use electricity. Therefore, electrification is a key step in phasing out fossil fuel dependence.
