Managing Your Electricity Costs

Understanding how and when your facility uses electricity will have an impact on your business’s bottom line.  The IESO’s most recent brochure, Managing Your Electricity Costs: a guide for business explains how your company can set goals for more efficient energy usage that can significantly reduce your electricity costs.  Actively managing your electricity use demonstrates to your customers and community that your organization is committed to managing its electricity costs.

Included in the brochure are case studies of businesses that have implemented some of the five recommendations for managing electricity costs.
