In a recent blog post, Green Building Elements discusses the many benefits of becoming energy efficient including reducing running costs for businesses, lowering carbon emissions, and marketing environmental awareness.
Even though it’s a win-win situation, most companies only see the large initial investments required to “go green.” In actuality, “energy efficient solutions are often cheap and easy to implement, sometimes requiring nothing more than some logical thinking.”
The author states that many businesses and offices still leave their lights and electronics on throughout the night, which is a large consumer of energy and drive up utility costs.
Installing new and updated lighting systems, that can include motion sensors and control systems, can reduce a business’s monthly utility bills.
