Demand Management

Our clients tell us that one major contribution to the high charges from their electrical utility company is something usually called " demand charges ".  In essence, if there is a short-term peak load sometime during the month, you may be charged an increased price for the whole month, not just the duration of the unusually high load.  This can obviously make your electricity invoice much higher.

 For example, in the diagram below, the spiky purple line shows two sharp peaks, one just before noon, and the other during the afternoon.  This could, for example, be caused by a very large motor that comes on a few times a day.  Depending on your utility company, they may be charging you as if your load was that high all month, even though it only happens a few times during the month.    

The blue line indicates how your electricity company sees your load after a Hybridyne system is installed to do "arbitrage" or "peak shaving" - the spikes are absorbed, and the load is transferred from the part of the day when your electrical utility company charges the most ( the "Peak" period ) , and relocated to the "Near Peak" or "Off Peak" times when the charges are lower.
Look at your electrical bill - find the demand charges, subtract them, and then recalculate your bill at the lower electricity charge - you'll see a significant saving on this one feature alone .
