What Are Demand Charges?

Half of your electric bill is based on the measurement of the total amount of energy you use throughout a billing period. The other half is assessed as a demand charge, a fee based on the highest peak usage recorded by your electric meter for a single 15 minute period (out of 2880 such intervals) every month.

Demand charges can vary by “time of use”, each electric utilities rate plans, your location, and season. Demand charges are levied by Electric Utilities in all 50 states. 

Even though commercial and industrial customers might only experience a single peak demand event during a given billing period, that single random demand peak can drive 20-50% of your total cost of electricity for the entire month. And while the general price of energy is decreasing, demand charges continue to grow.

Integrating EVs Into Your Business?

Electricity demand charges could increase your electricity costs by up to 50%.

DemandQ’s Intelligent Demand Optimization dramatically reduces demand charge for buildings & EV with no capex.

EV Fleet Charging

Economic and environmental impact of rapid adoption of EV fleets is being limited by the cost of peak demand charges generated by EV charging stations. A DCFC charging station with eight 350kW ports can drive a demand peak of up to 2.8MW. DemandQ’s Intelligent Optimization for EV Charging dramatically reduces demand charges.

DemandQ’s cloud-based SaaS integrates with your Charge Station Management Systems (CSMS) and Building Automation systems (BAS) to reduce demand charges across the whole electric bill, controlling electricity costs across all operations from supply to warehousing to delivery.

  • Optimizes behind-the-meter to reduce all demand charges, not just charging stations
  • Automatically adapts and re-optimizes in real-time for unplanned arrivals/departures
  • Compatible with renewables and storage configurations

We can show you exactly how DemandQ’s Intelligent Demand Optimization solution can reduce costs, improve operations, and accelerate EV adoption.

Read What Fraunhofer's USA Center for Sustainable Energy Systems Has to Say About DemandQ

"Results from this test indicate that the coordinated control of packaged rooftop units could plausibly and significantly reduce both energy consumption and peak demand without detrimentally affecting zone temperatures. Secondary energy savings resulted from controls fault correction. Issues related to overcooling and incorrect scheduling were corrected by DemandQ’s software."
