Energy Rate Structures II: Understanding and Reducing Your Bill

Understanding the forms of energy used at a facility, and the rate structure for each, is key to understanding energy costs and implementing an energy efficiency program. By understanding what you are paying for energy, and how the rate structure controls your bill, you can adopt different strategies for reducing your energy costs. In this course, we will focus primarily on gas and electricity pricing and rate calculations along with ways to shift your energy load in order to reduce your electricity costs.
