Money Saving Tips for Business Energy Bills

Welcome back the Business Discussion board! Before you hit that clock out button, I've got an article for you from that offers some great ways to save money on your business energy bills.


Audit your energy use
The best way to start saving on your energy bill is by understanding your current energy use. That involves seeing how many kilowatts your business consumes on a month-to-month basis, what time of day you use the most energy (and how that tracks with peak and off-peak hours) and which months.


Install smart thermostats
A smart thermostat is an internet-connected device that makes scheduling the use of your HVAC system easier. Getting a smart thermostat, for example, can help you preprogram office temperatures to prevent heating and cooling your space when no one's around.


Upgrade to energy efficient equipment
Older equipment such as refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers or other appliances can be energy wasters. Consider investing in an appliance upgrade -- especially energy efficient appliances -- to help offset your businesses energy costs.


Check for 'energy vampires'
Check for "energy vampires" -- electronics that use energy even when not in active use. These devices include computers, TVs, speakers and kitchen appliances. Unplug these when not in use to save energy and lower your electric bill. For businesses that involve people using computers, ask employees to shut off devices overnight or during the weekend to save money.


These are just to name a few! Check out the full article linked above for even more money saving tips. As always, we'd love to hear from you! What are you doing to cut back on energy costs?
