Energy Management

Energy management is a system of practices that creates reliable and persistent electric energy savings through improved operations, maintenance and management practices in your facilities. Energy management can result in:

  • Improved system operation and lower energy costs
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs and extended equipment life
  • Improved occupant comfort and productivity for tenants and employees


Energy management requires completion of the wattsmart Business general application (PDF) as well as your tax ID in a completed IRS Form W-9 (PDF) so we (or our program administrator) can prepare a 1099-Misc. (if required) following the incentive payment.


The primary benefit comes from the information and expertise in a Rocky Mountain Power energy management partnership, but when you implement energy management strategies through wattsmart Business you can also receive $0.02 per kWh verified savings.
