Your church now has solar.
So why is your utility bill still so high?
Most likely, there's nothing wrong with your solar installation.
The real cause is the utility's demand charges.
WHAT ARE “DEMAND CHARGES?”
Utilities charge a demand charge based on your largest spike in energy use every month. For churches, this sudden spike for energy happens when air conditioning systems (HVAC) abruptly turn on to cool the church before a service or when a cloud passes over your solar panels, decreasing solar energy output
Before a Church Installed DemandEx
HOW CAN CHURCHES REDUCE DEMAND CHARGES?
Because churches are event-driven with regularly scheduled services and community meetings, they can significantly reduce demand charges by installing DemandEx™, new software that can predict and lower the peaks caused by air conditioning, EV chargers, and other equipment.
...BUT HOW DOES DEMANDEX WORK?
DemandEx uses your church’s energy usage patterns, energy monitoring, energy forecasting, and dynamic controls to optimize solar production with your Church’s air conditioning and other “flexible” loads like EV chargers, heat pumps, and other equipment.
DOESN’T SOMEONE HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO USE THIS SOFTWARE?
No! DemandEx is ideal for churches that don’t have a dedicated facilities person. Because DemandEx is software, it works on its own, 24/7, predicting and reducing energy spikes and demand charges.
After the software is installed, the only time you or your staff should notice DemandEx is when you see lower demand charges on your bill.
MY CHURCH DOESN’T HAVE SOLAR. CAN DEMANDEX STILL HELP?
Yes! If your church is paying $20,000 a year or more in demand charges, DemandEx will still save money on demand charges regardless of whether solar is installed on your church.
BUT HOW MUCH DOES DEMANDEX COST?
DemandEx has a small setup fee plus a monthly charge based on the size of your church. Over the course of the year, your DemandEx can save thousands of dollars in net utility bill savings that can be used toward your mission.
