If your organization conducts business over multiple locations across deregulated states, you know all about dependence on the utilities that dole out energy supply and distribution services under a variety of rates and programs. If you don’t have a deep understanding of energy pricing, you are at the mercy of the energy companies that sell you supply.
Energy procurement is the strategic process an organization uses to identify, select and contract with energy suppliers to obtain energy at the optimal balance between price and risk. We can help you develop a business energy procurement strategy. When you outsource your utility procurement to us, you will get the best options for the right price.
Depending on your city and state, you may be required to submit one or more emissions reports. Reporting regulations are usually based on your industry as well as the size and location of your commercial buildings. Legal statutes guarding emissions are continually being changed and tightened. If you do business in several cities or states, keeping pace with and meeting all the reporting regulations can get complicated.
When you support sustainability with accurate greenhouse gas emissions reporting, you commit to maintaining a balance between economics, society and our physical environment. This is important to your customers, employees, shareholders and others. As industry experts we save you time and money while avoiding any mishaps related to accurate emissions reporting.
