An Energy Management Partnership

It takes a lot of hard work to run a successful business, and we want to help make sure your success includes efficient, cost-effective energy management. In PEC's Business Center, you'll find information about incentives to help offset the cost of efficiency-related upgrades, and we've partnered with Touchstone Energy Cooperatives and Apogee Interactive to provide calculators to help you forecast how changes in operations or equipment might impact your bottom line, and information to help you better understand the role energy management plays in your business strategy.

MyUse Energy AnalyzerIf you haven't already discovered MyUse Energy Analyzer, we encourage you to try it. It's a good way for small-power commercial members to monitor their daily use and track the success of their efforts to conserve electricity. (MyUse is not currently available for large-power commercial members.)
