Enabling Commercial Enterprises to Control Energy Use and Costs
Hospitals, office buildings, shopping malls, universities, hotels, prisons: Large non-industrial businesses can have huge energy needs to heat, cool, and light their workplaces and run computers, phone systems, cash registers, ovens, and other equipment.
Brakey Energy helps many large commercial businesses in Ohio assess their energy requirements and find ways to operate more efficiently and buy energy more effectively. When air conditioning and lighting drive your summer consumption, there are key threats and opportunities. Electricity prices are highest during the summer and also expensive capacity costs are triggered by peak summer usage. By finding ways to manage usage during these times, and by negotiating the proper generation contract, commercial users can see dramatic savings on their bills.“Brakey Energy helps us navigate the electric deregulation environment and advises us on the best possible rating program. They simplify the complex landscape of rate selection, such as whether it’s better to choose a fixed or variable rate. “At first, we were just interested in rate negotiations, but Brakey has added more value to our business by performing electric audits at our restaurants and guidance on energy efficient processes. This is even more valuable to us now as we face increasing rates with DSE2 riders. They are very timely and responsive. “Selecting Brakey is a ‘no-brainer.’ They are your resource and advocate for controlling a large cost center and delivering quantified profit improvement.”
