Simple Ways To Reduce Business Electricity Costs

by Pace Chan

In today’s highly competitive business landscape, it is crucial to find effective strategies for reducing business electricity costs. By minimizing energy consumption and enhancing energy efficiency, businesses can significantly boost their profits. This article highlights simple yet impactful methods to save on business electricity costs.


Unplug all device chargers when not in use

Phone and laptop chargers still consume a small amount of energy, even when they are not plugged into the devices concerned. In fact, some people call them “vampire appliances” due to the fact that they continue to suck energy even when not in use. So, make sure all of your employees unplug chargers when they are not in use.


Switch off all devices when not in use

In a similar vein to the above, if you don’t power down and switch off electrical devices when they are not in use, you could be adding hundreds if not thousands to your business electricity bill.

A standard desktop computer uses about 0.1 kWh energy when it is on standby, which is about 1.4p. Not a lot, you may think, but when you times it by 100 computers used 5 days a week for 52 weeks a year, it amounts to £728 extra on your electricity bill, which you don’t actually need to pay!


Ask employees not to use screensavers

Most people don’t realise this, but screensavers are far less energy efficient than actually applying proper powers settings.


Turn the heating down

This is usually the first thing business owners do when they are trying to save money on business energy because even just turning the heating down by 1 degree can have a hugely positive effect on your business energy bill.


Make sure you are on the right business electricity tariff

Lots of business owners don’t realise that they are actually paying more for their business energy than they need to as they are on the wrong tariff. Let D-ENERGI compare business energy per kWh for you to make sure you are not spending way more than you should. Get a quick quote online today.


Install smart lighting

We all know that switching off the lights when we leave a room can save money, but many of us just forget to do that. If you install motion-sensitive lighting in areas such as corridors and toilets, you remove the human element from this action altogether and save money in the long run.


Fix dripping taps immediately

All dripping taps and leaks should be instantly fixed, as the cost of repairing them will be far less than the hike in your water bill should you leave them unfixed.


Encourage your employees to be energy efficient champion

The best way to save business energy in your workplace is to get your employees involved to help you along. You could even nominate an energy efficiency champion to take charge and encourage other people to get involved as well.
