Foley attorneys Tom Mullooly and Kurt Rempe recently published an article in IMPO Magazine and Manufacturing.net laying out the important steps manufacturers can take to reduce their energy costs. The article touches on the how-to’s of assigning internal responsibility for reducing overall energy costs, scrutinizing contracts with energy consultants, contractors and component suppliers, negotiating with utilities for lower rates, evaluating competing offers from energy suppliers, navigating different demand response programs, and deciding whether self-generation makes economic sense. A link to their article is available here.
