How Much Energy Is Your Small Business Consuming?


As a business owner, you may have a lot on your plate running your small business. From managing employees and finances to marketing and sales, the list can seem endless. Amidst these tasks, one aspect that often gets overlooked is energy consumption.

In our latest blog we will offer some tips on how to pay close attention to your business’ energy usage, and also provide our advice on what to do if you are currently dealing with rising energy bills. 


Why your energy usage is so important 

Energy consumption is an integral part of running a small business, and it impacts your bottom line in more ways than one. Energy is a significant expense for most businesses. The cost of electricity, gas, and other forms of energy can grow quickly and significantly impact your monthly budget. 

Moreover, being mindful of your energy usage can also have a positive  impact on the environment. By reducing your energy consumption, you can decrease your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet.


How to determine your business’ energy usage

The first step in understanding how much energy your small business is using is to track and monitor it. This can be done through utility bills and by paying attention to the equipment and appliances you use on a daily basis. 

However, thanks to the wonders of digital technology we can now also review energy usage with a handy smart meter. A device that allows you to see your energy consumption in real-time. With a digital display you can choose to see for yourself how much energy your appliances use but also how much this will cost you. At D-ENERGi we have been supporting the smart meter roll out, providing our business energy customers with installations and set up, more here

Another way to determine your energy usage is by conducting an energy audit. This involves a professional auditor coming into your business premises and evaluating your business’ energy efficiency and identifying areas where improvements can be made. These energy audits can provide you with a wealth of information and advice on how to reduce your consumption and save money. If you’re struggling to identify areas of your business where you may be able to save, we would recommend an energy audit. 


What to do with rising energy bills

If your energy bills are continuously rising, one of the first things you should be doing is addressing your energy consumption. Being able to pay close attention to your usage and reduce the use of particular appliances or machinery, in periods when they are not required, will make a big difference to your energy bills. 

If you are concerned about your energy usage or do not understand the information provided on your energy bills, contact the D-ENERGi team for advice and guidance.
