In recent years, there has been a push from energy companies country-wide to persuade businesses to come up with energy management plans that will make them more efficient.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t been on the top of the list for business owners.
Despite that, Com Ed recently said since 2008, it has seen a four percent decline in overall energy usage on the grid. They equate that four percent to taking 2 cities off the grid – Rockford and Aurora. Think about it: even with just a small amount of companies redirecting resources to make their energy usage more efficient, a huge amount of electrical resources have been saved. Many companies who started becoming more efficient 4 or 5 years ago are seeing the monetary benefits. Nicor Gas told a group of business leaders last week at an energy efficiency forum that since 2011, its energy efficiency program has saved more than $12 million in cash incentives and given rebates of $500,000 to a single business!
