There are so many wonderful reasons to hire an energy consultant!
Every company wants to save energy. Energy spend is often a big part of a company’s budget, and when you can lower your energy spend, you can allocate your resources where you need them the most. In our last blog, we talked about what an energy consultant is and what they can do for your business. Today, we’ll be talking about the benefits of hiring an energy consultant over hiring an in-house energy manager:
#1. You don’t have to put an energy consultant on the payroll!
If you were to hire an in-house energy manager, you’d have to put a whole new team member on the payroll. While energy savings are important, once you have a good plan in place, your energy manager won’t have as much to do. An energy consultant, on the other hand, will provide you with the work you need without having to be added to your payroll.
#2. You won’t have to train anyone.
Even if you hire someone who has years of energy management experience, you’ll still have to go through the training process. This takes both time and money that you won’t have to spend if you hire an energy consultant. That is because energy consultants are already trained!
#3. An energy consultant will be able to monitor the markets full time.
In-house staff often gets pulled in more than one direction, and their tasks will typically go beyond the duties that come with their position. When you hire an energy consultant, you won’t have to worry about them being pulled in multiple directions because their primary job is to look for ways to help you cut energy and save money!
