How to Save Money on Energy Costs as a Business

Posted April 1, 2015 by Eric Tiffany in Uncategorized

Keeping energy costs low is an often overlooked yet easy way for a business to save money.  Cutting back on energy use will not only improve your bottom line but could also reduce a company’s carbon footprint.  Here are a few methods that should help put a dent in your monthly energy bills:

  •  Install “smart” power strips at every work station that effectively unplug computers and other electronic work equipment at the end of the day.
  • Have employees power down their work stations at the end of the day.
  • Replace old appliances with Energy Star appliances.
  • Use a laptop instead of a desktop computer as laptops consume less energy than desktop computers.
  • Change all light bulbs to LEDs or CFLs which are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs.
  • Install a programmable thermostat.
