How Your Business Could Save Energy and Money During Energy Saving Week

SHINE Partners | October 2022


Energy Saving Week is a national initiative aiming to aid and encourage individuals to save energy while lowering fuel expenses. The week focuses on educating the public on how to switch energy suppliers or tariffs to get the best price, get savings, and make houses more energy-efficient.

This year, the initiative is especially timely, given the rise in fuel prices. Homeowners across the nation are struggling to pay their energy bills, and businesses are feeling the pinch as well. As a business owner, it's essential to be proactive about finding ways to reduce your energy costs. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to lower your energy bill and save money this week. Here are a few tips:

Tip #1: Educate Your Employees on Energy Saving Tips

The first step to saving energy in your business is educating your employees on simple ways to save energy. For example, employees should be encouraged to turn off lights and appliances when they're not in use. Employees should also be enabled to use natural light where possible. These small changes can add up to significant savings over time.

Tip #2: Get an Energy Audit for Your Business and Install a Smart Meter

Another great way to save energy and money during Energy Saving Week is to get an energy audit for your business. An energy audit will help you identify areas where your business uses too much energy. Once you know where the problem areas are, you can work on fixing them. You can monitor these problem areas by having a smart meter installed through your local utility provider.  Smart meters are devices that help you track your energy usage in real-time to help determine your electricity bill and produce detailed reports like your building's 15-minute interval data. This information can be precious in identifying wastage patterns so that you can change your habits accordingly.

In many cases, simply being aware of how much energy you're using can encourage you to use less. Smart meters can also help you take advantage of time-of-use pricing from your supplier, which could lead to even more significant savings. This will help you save money on your energy bill and make your business more sustainable in the long run.

Tip #3: Invest in Energy-Efficient Technology for Your Business

One of the best ways to save energy and money during Energy Saving Week is to invest in energy-efficient technology for your business. This could be anything from LED lights to solar panels. Not only will this help you save money on your energy bill, but it will also make your business more sustainable. Solar power is becoming increasingly affordable as technology advances. Installation costs have fallen by 70% over the past decade, making solar an attractive option for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their energy bills. With the introduction of battery storage solutions, businesses can now store solar power during peak times, reducing their reliance on the grid—and their costs. Investing in energy-efficient technology is a win-win for everyone involved!

By following these tips, you'll be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint and make your business more sustainable in the long run. So, what are you waiting for? Get started today!
