Account Management for SMBs

Although SMBs often account for >85% of all non-residential accounts, this market is frequently underrepresented as a percent of total non-residential portfolio savings for a utility. The sheer volume of SMB accounts, minimal access to capital, and limited knowledge of energy or efficiency has in part contributed to the hard to reach designation. In addition, many SMBs lease their facility space, reducing interest in prescriptive capital investment efficiency projects.

Utility investment in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) has created new opportunities to better understand the needs and opportunities of SMBs through remote assessment. Capitalizing on this opportunity, Power TakeOff’s software and analytical platform distinctly and confidently identifies unusual energy usage data abnormalities as leading indicators of efficiency savings potential.

Trained energy advisors individually review every identified account to verify the opportunity, develop a custom action plan, and quantify meter savings potential. Advisors then individually reach out to each targeted account to virtually deliver personalized and pinpointed solutions specific to their identified efficiency need.
