At Work Tips

One of the easiest ways to increase profit is by reducing expenses. Taking steps to reduce your energy use can save your business thousands of dollars each year in lower energy bills. Some upgrades require an upfront investment and are likely to produce meaningful savings, but even simply changing attitudes in the workplace can have a huge impact. Find employees in your company that are passionate about energy efficiency, create a working group to identify changes that can be made and educate and reward participating colleagues. To enhance returns, enlist the help of a qualified energy auditor to reveal where you can reduce energy loss. There are rebates, incentives and tax breaks available to offset costs. If you are considering any major changes or capital investments in your work space, make sure you check to see if you’re eligible for a state or federal aid.
