How to Get Upper Management to Buy Into Power Monitoring

If you are a regular reader of the Electro Industries blog, you already know the many ways that a business can benefit from power monitoring.

When properly installed and utilized, an energy management system can result in less energy waste, reduced operating expenses, and an increased profit margin. Companies can also relay this information to the public, helping them build a reputation as a socially responsible business.

If you wish to begin implementing a power saving program at your business, one thing you will need is upper management’s support. If you are not currently an executive-level employee, gaining this support can be rather challenging. Use these tips to get upper management to buy into the idea of power monitoring at your company:

  • Present the problem, then the solution. In order to get management’s support, you need to clearly define two things: the problem, and the solution. Open your case with the current issue at hand and be sure to explain why it is problematic (unsafe conditions, losing money, etc.). Then present your ideal solution, covering as many details as possible.

  • Back up your case with facts and clear-cut benefits. You can fluff up your presentation all you want, but it takes more than persuasive language to generate support. You need to back up your ideas with facts, and quantifying your reasoning through relevant numerical statistics is a great way to do it.

  • Do your research. If management likes, or is at least considering your idea, they will almost always have follow up questions. Part of your job is anticipating these questions and doing your research in advanced. If you don’t have an immediate answer available, tell them you will look into it and get back to them in a timely manner.
