Cut Your Summer Energy Use

Electricity powers your business, but the high cost can hit your bottom line hard – especially with the soaring cooling bills racked up on hot summer days.

Save your business money and lend a hand to the environment with these simple tips to reduce your energy consumption this summer:

  • Turn equipment and lights off after hours and when not in use
  • Apply solar control films to window and door glass
  • Use high efficiency products when possible – the higher upfront cost is worth it down the line
  • Use task lighting instead of overhead lighting
  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs – they use 75% less electricity while producing the same amount of light
  • If possible, offer flex hours in the summer so employees can  come in and leave earlier, letting them work in the cooler hours of the day
