The Full Story -  UCM incorporated 15-minute interval data showing actual electricity consumption at the "large", "mid-sized", and "small" stores.

UCM was retained by one of the nation’s largest retailers to analyze rates and tariffs for 116 electricity providers in the eastern United States, quantify the impact of potential changes to “primary voltage” service, and summarize the results.   The project was performed on a very tight schedule and required UCM to identify rate schedules and riders that applied to client facilities, interpret and clarify complex tariff provisions, and quickly determine the impact on client stores.

 

For each of the 116 electric utilities that were reviewed, UCM created Excel models that calculated the annual savings that would result if stores were converted to primary voltage service.  UCM incorporated 15-minute interval data showing actual electricity consumption at “large”, “mid-sized”, and “small” stores into the model so that we could assess the impact of the proposed changes for any type of store served by each utility.

 

UCM completed the project on time and the client was extremely pleased with the results.
