Conservation Tips

Save on energy

  • Make sure all windows and doors are closed during off hours, and only open when necessary during open hours.

  • Reduce air conditioner usage in summer.

Lighting

  • Open blinds and shades instead of turning on lights where you can.
  • Replace incandescent with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • Use LED signage, monitors and holiday lights.
  • Use occupancy/motion sensors for areas of your office to automate when lights shut off.

Equipment and Appliances

  • Turn all computers and network peripherals off at day end.
  • Use energy efficient devices and replace all CRT screens with LCD/LED.
  • Use a humidity control system to control your freezers or cold rooms by a few degrees.
