When I had a commercial bay the guys next door were on a demand meter, which consisted of little more than a needle gauge that would show the max amperage used between billing cycles. They found that if all of the workers started their machines up at the same time the max load was significantly higher than if the guys turned on the machine slower. You just didn't want 10 guys turning on high draw power tools at the same time. So after coffee they had a system to avoid everyone firing up at the same time.
