If you’re a regular visitor to our site, the facts should come as no surprise. It’s estimated the average North American household spends nearly $6,000 on power each year. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported residential consumers should expect a 3 percent rise in prices this year – representing the largest increase since 2008.
Given these numbers, the race is on to find more efficient, cost-effective ways to procure and manage power. For the typical business or consumer, that’s no easy proposition. And the challenge is even more daunting for those who are really struggling financially – and the non-profits dedicated to making their lives a little easier.
