4 ways to make business energy efficient
With limited energy supply available, you should adopt the following techniques to make your business operations more energy efficient.
Make more use of laptop
Research indicates that laptop computers use about 80% less energy compared to the desktop computers. So, if you trade off your desktops for laptops, then you will notice a drastic change in your energy savings.
Set sleep modes on the electronic gadgets
Most office machines like computers, fax machines, printers, and copiers have a power save or sleep mode option. If the machines are left idle for some time, then they convert automatically to switch mode saving lots of money on bills. A machine in a power mode consumes 70% more energy than when it’s in the ‘sleep mode.’
Keep small and new refrigerators in the office
Many business owners think that they will save money by keeping their old refrigerator. But this is not true. Even though they may be in good order, they may use up lots of electricity compared to a new refrigerator, especially the ones manufactured after the year 2001. For example, if you have an old refrigerator, it will cost you bout $300 every year. A new refrigerator, on the other hand, will cost only $75 years. So, you can notice the huge energy savings.
Buy energy star qualified products
Energy Star products use 20% less energy than the normal products. Most energy star products go into power saving mode automatically, thus saving you a lot of energy bills.
By conducting your business operations this way, you will be able to reduce the consumption of energy. Therefore, your office utility will go down significantly.
