Your monthly electric bill is a valuable tool, although often complex and difficult to read. The first step in understanding your facility’s bill is to translate it into when and how much energy is being consumed. Knowing these components will allow you to inform your energy management plan and evaluate if operating decisions are having an effect. After reviewing your facility’s bills, you can make smarter energy efficient operating decisions based on the time frame and how the equipment uses energy. Once you have taken steps to lower consumption, use your energy bills to track progress toward your energy-related goals.
