Saving money in your business requires your attention to more than just one technique. You’ve got to cut expenses, identify waste, and eliminate inefficiency wherever you can find it. And when your ruthless pursuit of saving money drives you to either cut back on payroll or on the services you can provide, that hurts.

When it comes to helping commercial, industrial, and municipal entities save on energy, Energy Network has succeeded in helping to find savings in unexpected places. Even if you’ve given up hope on squeezing any more savings out of your current energy strategy, don’t despair. You might still be able to save more than you think. Here are just a few of the strategies we’d recommend that you consider to reduce your operating costs.

1. Save Money Through Strategic Energy Procurement

Where do you buy the energy that your facility consumes? If you simply purchase it from the local power company without thinking, you could be missing out on serious savings. You wouldn’t buy anything else in your business from a vendor without taking a hard look into whether you were getting the best value for the fairest price. Why should electricity be any different?

You’re not limited to buying electricity from the local power board. In fact, you’re free to purchase your energy from the lowest bidder. And the beauty is, electricity is electricity. It’s not like you’re going to be getting a second-rate product just because you’re paying less. You’ll simply be taking the logical step of shopping around and getting the best price.

However, this can be an unfamiliar thing for many people to navigate. This is why we have our energy consultants standing by to help you. You won’t have to navigate energy procurement alone.

2. Save Money Through Efficient Energy Consumption

Once you’ve procured that energy at lower prices, it’s time to put it to good use by ensuring that it all gets used in the most efficient way possible. If certain processes, pieces of equipment, or personnel habits are wasting energy (inadvertently or otherwise), you need to optimize further. Our consultants can also help you to do this piece. They’ll look into every aspect of your overall energy spend and offer you a comprehensive strategy to optimize your company’s energy consumption.

We’ll look more in depth at these areas in a future blog, but here are some of the practical ways that our consultants can help you to consume less energy.
