Energy is one of the highest and most overlooked reoccurring costs that a facility can experience. Unfortunately, the energy service industry is also one of the most predatory in facilities management. Do you know what your broker is charging for helping you buy your gas or electricity? How many times have you heard, it’s free or the utility company pays for our service? The truth of the matter is simple YOU pay for their services and often for the duration of the supply contract. Many facilities managers are not aware of how much or that they are padding the wallets of marketers and brokers.
