As the energy marketplace gets more complex, wouldn't it be great to find a resource specifically designed for commercial and industrial (C/I) energy users, and the contractors that serve them? Look no further: www.energybuyer.org may be just the site for you! The response by readers to a previous "Energy Wiz" column in Engineered Systems (on a technique for 3-D visualization of interval energy data) indicated a desire for other tips on handling retail energy issues. Such tips and other resources may be found at energybuyer.org.
While many energy marketers and equipment vendors offer advice on their websites, most of it is quite general and is often merely copied from energy-related documents available from government energy agencies. Very little of it reflects actual enduser experience, and even less of it is updated to remain current with changes in the marketplace.
