    First of all accurately measure the present consumption rate. Break it down into factory, stores, offices or whatever is suitable for you. Do you have cheap overnight electricity ?  Does consumption vary significantly throughout the day.
    Then brainstorm with employees ways to save electricity, ie eliminate draughts, buy more energy efficient equipment, switch production to nights if nighttime electricity is cheaper. Install solar panels, wind turbines. Have lights that switch off if no movement is detected for 2 minutes. Turn the heating down.
    Then compare consumption with before.
    regards,

    I, too, have been tasked with the same project for my facility.  If anyone has already undertaken this type of project who would be willing to share his or her results, it would be most appreciated.  Perhaps we could stay in touch, Haraprasad.
    Good luck,
    Carl
