A large automotive parts manufacturer spent a considerable amount of time and energy attempting to reduce utility costs at its Mexican facilities. Their combined annual energy spend is over $30,000,000. Enerlogix Solutions was hired to review their work and help them prepare for the upcoming changes in the electricity and natural gas markets.
The Utility Profile Assesment (UPA) results were quite impressive. Several opportunities for savings were identified including an electric tariff change (annual savings of $100,000), an opportunity to negotiate natural gas distribution rates (annual savings of $300,000) and an opportunity to purchase additional water rights (annual savings of $200,000). In addition to these low-cost/no-cost savings opportunities, the company is now positioned to take full advantage of the deregulated electricity and natural gas markets.
