How to save on your
business’ electricity bills

Save on your business’s electricity costs with these 6 easy energy-saving tips!

We know that when it comes to your business every cent counts, and we understand that electricity costs can be a major shock to your bottom line. But don’t worry we have six simple electricity-saving tips, tailor-made to help small businesses like yours to cut down on costs.

1. Upgrade your lighting!

Upgrading your business’ lighting can be an absolute game-changer for saving on your energy costs. LED lights consume a massive 75% less energy than traditional lighting, which can lead to a big drop in your energy costs. In addition to being a sustainable lighting solution, LED lights typically last 5 to 10 years longer than traditional incandescent light bulbs.

To cut down on energy consumption further, consider adding downlighting to reduce your usage. Additionally, opt for motion-triggered lighting to keep the lights on only when needed, preventing unnecessary energy consumption when you leave the room.

2. Energy Efficient Appliances

If you want to manage your energy expenses like a boss, investing in energy-efficient appliances can substantially drive down your electricity consumption. When looking for appliances for your business, look out for those with high star ratings. These appliances are designed to consume less electricity without compromising performance. By replacing your old, energy-hungry appliances with energy-efficient ones, you can lower your overall electrical consumption and enjoy long-term savings.

Some appliances even have stand-by and sleep features that you can utilise as well to reduce their power consumption when not in use, eliminating unnecessary energy consumption.

3. Educate your staff on energy efficiency. 

Educating your employees about energy-efficient office practices can play an important role in achieving the goal of energy efficiency. Simple actions like turning off lights and electronic devices when not in use, utilising natural light whenever possible, and setting appropriate thermostat temperatures can collectively lead to significant energy savings.

By promoting an energy-conscious culture within the workplace, your businesses will not only cut down on operational expenses but also contribute to a more sustainable future.

4. Perform an energy audit

Engage an energy auditor to gain a comprehensive breakdown of your business’s energy usage. Energy audits help to identify areas where you can access potential savings by capitalising off your energy usage effectively. By implementing the audit’s recommendations, you can actively reduce energy consumption, leading to cost savings and an eco-friendlier approach. So, seize the opportunity to enhance your energy efficiency and save money!
