It looks like much of New Jersey is about to get hit with some serious snow this week, and while winter isn't officially here yet, it's never too early to start saving energy (and money) for your business during this upcoming season.
Here are our suggestions on ways your business can save during Winter.
Don't waste heat (or money) on areas you're not using. Only heat spaces of your facility that are in use every day. Consider lowering the temperature in hallways since they are only used a couple of minutes at a time
Schedule an energy assessment to see how you can improve the efficiency of your business. Donnelly Energy offers free assessments for programs like NJ SmartStart Buildings and Direct Install from New Jersey's Clean Energy Program™. Schedule one today!
Inspect your business for any drafts that may be leaking in cold air and seal them. Make sure all furniture and belongings are away from the heating vents. You're paying for that heat - don't let it escape or be blocked!
Electric and gas deregulation (also known as third party energy) in New Jersey allows customers to choose from competitively priced energy suppliers, different from their local utility, to provide electric and/or gas supply at a lower cost. One way your business can immediately reduce operating costs (without any upfront capital) is through our Energy Rate Savings Program.
Encourage employees to be mindful of their energy usage and involve them in the overall energy efficiency initiative for the business. Brainstorm with your employees on ways to cut down on your energy costs and routinely review your efforts.
