Security dealers and Integration firms need to look closely at the recurring revenue opportunities that await them if they but look at their present client list. Local and state governments in some locales have or soon will pass legislation that mandates the submission of periodic energy consumption reports. It’s imperative for these clients to have the means of tracking consumption over a period of time in order to comply.
The following is an example where the city of Minneapolis now requires energy consumption reports:
The energy use intensity of larger commercial buildings in Minneapolis declined by 5.5% | #Verdafero #EnergyConsumption #Government #Monitoring | As more Minnesota cities take steps to require building energy benchmarking, evidence suggests that the state’s first such policy is helping to nudge energy consumption lower. https://lnkd.in/ebiAym6
You can offer the necessary data through your Central Station Services! In a word, “Stop leaving money on the table” when you sell central monitoring station service. In the case of existing customers, reach out to them so they know you have it, and do it regularly so when their own city of residence demands such a report, they will think of you!
So, where can you go to integrate your CMS with smart meters in order to provide this data. In addition, you can provide real-time monitoring services so your client can be alerted to abnormal conditions that can occur in any utility, be it electrical, natural gas, heating oil, and other utilities. Real-time conditions are acted on by your CMS as well as automatic PUSH data to your client’s mobile device.
