Experts reveal how businesses can reduce energy bills

Revealing the methods businesses can undertake to reduce energy consumption and energy bills, with experts providing advice on how to avoid rising energy costs.

With inflation continuously on the rise which in turn is driving the cost of living up, there has never been a more relevant time for businesses to cut back on their energy usage to reduce bills. 

This is important as businesses are feeling the financial pressure just as much as families, as a result, rethinking how companies utilise their energy could save businesses a lot of money.

Our Managing Director here at Utilink Consulting, Sam Riches, has analysed the different ways businesses can do more to reduce their energy bills and benefit financially while ultimately promoting sustainable values as a result of becoming more eco-friendly.

Go-to tips for reducing your energy bills

There are three essential go-to factors businesses should consider when attempting to lower their energy costs.

Firstly, it’s essential to check your lighting and upgrade where possible, while you might not see the cost benefits immediately through upgrading your facilities, this can chop a huge percentage off your energy bill moving forward.

This is due to the fact that newer lighting technology uses less energy overall than older lighting infrastructure, therefore you can receive the same lighting but for a lower monthly cost!

The next go-to tip and method businesses can employ to reduce their energy consumption and therefore bills are through the installation of energy-saving services. 

This includes the integration of solar-powered energy, voltage optimisation and smart meters, these eco-friendly technologies ensure that no excess energy is wasted while also promoting sustainable modes of energy. 

The last go-to tip is to simply ensure unused tech is being switched off when not in use, including monitors in the office, the heating and lights when it’s time to go home. 

Although it may not seem like much, this is a great habit to get into as it promotes a natural way of reducing energy consumption, it’s easy to integrate into the workplace and can be done with no extra cost.

How staff can play their part in reducing the energy consumption in the workplace

While it is ultimately the business’ priority to reduce the amount of energy consumed in the workplace, therefore reducing the costs of the energy bill, there’s no hiding that staff can play a major role in helping to keep the energy consumption down.

We at Utilink Consulting believe that educating your staff on the plans to reduce their business’ carbon footprint to reduce costs can truthfully empower employees and convince them to play their part.

Staff can help with the day-to-day management of energy consumption, ensuring tech is being switched off when not in use, by allowing staff to play their part, employees will be motivated to continue to campaign for a more sustainable place of work.
