For Business

  • In the winter, turn your thermostat down to 68 degrees or below. Reduce the setting to 55 degrees at the end of the day. (For each 1 degree you turn down the thermostat in the winter, you'll save up to 5% on your heating costs.)
  • Turn off all unnecessary lights, especially in unused offices and conference rooms and turn down remaining lighting levels where possible.
  • Set computers, monitors, printers, copiers and other business equipment to their energy saving feature and turn them off at the end of the day.
  • Minimize energy usage during peak demand hours from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Buy Energy Star appliances, products, and lights.
  • Consider placing outdoor signs on a timer so they only run until 1:00 am, saving electricity during non-peak hours.
