Business Energy Consumption Reduction Made Simple
Reducing your business energy consumption doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive or laborious. Like many positive changes that we make to secure long term benefits, it mostly consists of simple, everyday lifestyle adaptation. When combined, these tips can make a massive difference to your bill spend.
Brewing up to save up
Are you making just one cup of tea? Do you really need to fill the kettle? Think about the amount of water you are using and how much energy you are wasting by heating water you don’t need.
By only heating the water you need you will significantly save on your energy bills.

Look out for energy efficiency ratings whenever you buy new electricals for your business. These labels let customers see how energy-efficient a model is before committing to buying. Appliances that are rated are the most efficient and the cheapest to run.
Switch your energy supplier
Switching your supplier can seem like a big hassle. In reality, all it takes is a few forms and a short telephone conversation to save your business a lot of money and to make sure you’re on the right tariff.

A bright idea
Replacing existing light bulbs with an energy-saving version will save you cash in the long run. Compact fluorescent lamps (or CFLs for short) come in a variety of shapes, sizes and fittings and could save you about £3 a year – or £55 over the life of the bulb.
An end of the day sweep
Encourage your employees to make sure all electrical equipment are switched off and shut down properly at the end of each day. Not only will this save your energy but leaving computers on when not in use actually reduces their lifespan, because moving parts wear out faster.
Make sure any plugs are switched off at the wall.
