A restaurant group w/ 50 locations lowered its energy spend by more than 30% – in addition to reducing its overall lighting demand by 70%. Achieving the most strategic reductions in energy use and utility costs takes a comprehensive approach w/ qualified experts to pull many interrelated physical and contractual pieces together.

Have you taken advantage?

Electricity deregulation began in the mid 1990s. Natural gas deregulation began in the late 1980s. Energy deregulation is done on a state-by-state basis with some federal oversight and regulations administered by the Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”). Each state has very specific rules and there are different energy markets in each state. Contact OOE to get the details that apply to your location(s) and the expertise that OOE provides.

We were approached by OOE to do an analysis at one of our Michigan Avenue Properties in Chicago. In the past we had always assumed that going directly to a supplier would afford us the best overall price, guidance, support and ultimately savings. OOE proved this to be untrue and blew us away with their insight and analysis. They ended up saving us nearly 30% on our annual energy spend, which amounted to over $250,000 in savings over the next 2 years. Energy is proven to be unique and it is important to have a strong ally that can help us navigate this complex process effectively.
