Managing the Costs of Commercial Electricity

Large businesses have the distinct advantage of representing enough demand that they can negotiate lower prices with utilities providers, because suppliers want to secure a large contract. Despite this ability to manage their commercial electricity and commercial gas costs, commercial electric expenses can represent more than half of overall costs in some sectors. Plymouth Rock Energy has a robust portfolio of energy services and solutions to help these kinds of businesses meet their growing energy needs, control the cost of doing business in the face of rising fuel prices, and stay efficient.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration notes that energy intensity in the U.S. industrial sector has been on the decline for several years. However, certain industries such as in the metal smelting or chemical manufacturing sectors continue to have very high levels of energy costs.
