Top Energy Saving Tips For Your Business

Green energy saving methods

1. Switch to LED Lights


LED lights can reduce your company’s electricity consumption and maintenance by up to 90% compared to non LED light fittings.

2. Install Motion Sensitive Lighting


It’s very easy to leave lights on where you don’t need them. Motion sensitive lighting will turn off automatically when the room is not in use and save money on your business energy costs.

3. Turn Off the Lights


This is a no brainer yet so many people still don’t turn off the lights when they leave a room. Additionally, make the most of natural lighting by opening blinds in daylight hours and keep those lights off!

4. Use a Smart Meter to Track Usage


A smart meter sends its readings to your supplier automatically and because of this, gives a more accurate reading on how much energy your business is using and how much it is actually costing.

5. Use Solar Powered Devices

Appliances consume a lot of the total energy used. With advances in solar technology, solar powered devices are becoming more efficient and viable. Switching to solar power reduces your bills, overall emissions and helps the environment.

6. Switch to Energy Efficient Appliances


While most energy-efficient appliances cost more than their less-efficient counterparts, that cost is made back in the form of lower energy bills. Research shows that making the switch just with kitchen appliances for e.g, could mean savings of up to £213 a year.

7. Unplug


Remember to unplug electronics before leaving the room or when they are not in use as they could be running off of phantom power. Phantom power is energy used by appliances and electronics when they are turned off but still plugged into a power outlet.

8. Get an Energy Audit

This is a questionnaire that will ask you about your property and assess how much energy you use annually. Once you determine how much energy you are using, you can take further actions to reduce your bills to improve the efficiency of your home or workplace.

Finding better deals on your energy contracts and switching suppliers is one of, if not the best way of lowering your monthly energy bills. Moving from a standard tariff to the cheapest energy deals on the market could see potential savings of up to £300 per year.
