We help manufacturers reduce energy costs
Breakerbox specializes in helping manufacturers reduce their energy costs. For manufacturers, increasing margin without sacrificing quality is key to achieving business goals.
Energy is one of the few places this is possible.
Here are just a few examples of some of the unique energy challenges we help manufacturers solve as energy consultants.
To run, or not to run? That is the question…
Other industries might only run 9-5 but many manufacturers are running overnight or on weekends, which can enable the flexibility to avoid peak charges and cash in on times when energy is less expensive (“time of use” products).
Sometimes choosing not to run equipment for as little as 5 strategically chosen hours per month can reduce costs by utilizing capacity tag management strategies.
You must be willful and strategic about the type of energy product you choose. All-in fixed-rate, index, or a strategic mixture of both with some hedging, can help you lower your energy overhead.
At Breakerbox, we crunch these numbers for you and build you an energy strategy that's tailored to your business and your goals.
Lots of moving parts
There are lots of moving parts in a manufacturing facility (literally) and that also translates to your energy needs.
Most manufactures will have multiple meters and multiple energy accounts for different buildings on the same property.
Did you know that outdoor lighting will often also be on a separate account and meter?
Depending on the size, some equipment can even get its own account and meter.
If you are like most of our clients, you may have been too busy managing the other 100 things on your plate to renew all these different accounts at the best possible rate and product.
As a part of building your energy strategy, Breakerbox performs an audit of all your accounts and meters to ensure that each is on the best possible rate and product for its day to day use.
Time is money, which makes billing errors expensive
Billing errors are time-consuming and expensive.
By the time you realize there is a problem (IF you realize it), you have already been paying too much. It’s likely the bills are simply going to accounts payable, which makes it very hard for most customers to even catch these mistakes.
