Just as in your daily life, weather affects the amount of energy it takes to run your business. The Weather Impact tool gives you a precise look at how your usage changes based on the temperature outside, so you can see how weather affects your business operations and plan ahead for hot summer months and cooler winter periods. So, whether you find yourself putting on a jacket or wishing you were wearing shorts on your way to work, you can adapt your business’ energy usage to match.

The Operating Schedule tool helps you identify excess or unnecessary usage outside of typical business hours. Are you running the A/C on days you’re closed or is machinery in use after hours? Now you can see exactly how much unnecessary energy you’re expending, and then start making the changes to help your business save without impacting your normal operations.
