Less Money, Smaller Footprint — EnergyUnited/NISC Is Helping to Bring Our Energy Consumption to Light

Energy consumption at our postal facilities for utility items like heating and lighting fueled Postal Service™ costs to the tune of $610 million in FY 2007. One strategy to help meet our goal of reducing energy consumption by 20 percent over the next 5 years is the Utility Management System (UMS).

UMS will capture cost and use data for electricity, natu­ral gas, and fuel oil bill management. It will provide detailed facility utility consumption and cost profiles, bill payment, auditing, rate optimization, and easy-to-use reports. This information will help us manage energy consumption, pri­oritize how we invest in our facility energy infrastructure, and obtain better pricing for utility contracts. Historically, processes like UMS typically reduce utility costs by 1 to 3 percent.

EnergyUnited/NISC is the vendor that will implement and support UMS. The UMS pilot started November 1, and will run for 6 to 12 months. It includes 500 of our largest facilities as well as 100 smaller facilities. If the pilot is suc­cessful, the project will be implemented nationwide.
