How to save money on business’s energy bills


If you run a business then saving energy is not only vital for your bottom line, but also important for the environment and helping reduce the cost of climate change.

It can also be very financially beneficial to go green with government legislation rewarding lower emissions. Here are some tips on how to cut your businesses’ energy costs.

Turn Off Lights

Sounds obvious, but not as obvious as it might seem. According to new research as many as 9/10 people have admitted to leaving lights on at work once they have left the room.

To remind your staff and co-workers to turn the lights off once they have left the room, think about installing signs next to light switches in conference rooms to turn out lights.

You should also consider motion-activated lights in little-used hallways or common areas that will turn off after a period of time and turn on only when someone enters the space.

Switch Suppliers

Consider getting rid of your computer servers, and instead going with cloud-based systems. Cut out running multiple servers and having to cool hot data centres and just move most of your workload to a cloud system.

According to one survey in 2010, a small business with 100 users could cut its carbon footprint and energy costs by 90% by moving to the cloud. On top of that, more employees could telecommute.

There may be multiple reasons to move or not move to the cloud. But when evaluating that move, be sure to consider the energy impact as one factor.

So, by following these simple tips you can save your business up to thousands of pounds a year and also do your bit in the fight against climate change.
