Business Energy - Employees can make a difference
People need to change the way they think about energy and business are not excluded from this concept. Energy translates to needs of a company to provide for the efficient running of machinery that a company uses. Many companies waste a lot of energy as employees have a notion that they donít need to save in the workplace therefore business energy resources are depleted and energy bills skyrocket.
What a lot of employees donít realize is that no company can afford to waste energy and therefore measures are needed to ensure that all employees are made fully aware of the fact that each employee is responsible for their area of work space, and that it is run energy efficiently.
An efficient aware company will inform employees that cost effectiveness are good ways to help a company and that the rewards in saving energy will eventually trickle into profits, thus, good profits will ensure better salaries and bonuses will be improved. So it is in the best interests of all employees to work with management to effect cost saving measures.
Management and staff that are responsible for the maintenance of a building should always be aware of methods of saving costs. Leaving all the light on overnight when employees have left for home is a gross waste of electricity. Security lighting in strategic places is being prudent but switching off office lights when the office is not in use is sensible energy saving. A switch down of the thermostat by one degree can make a difference overall without making the office environment less comfortable.
Maintenance of a building is another area that could make a difference in energy usage; a building that is optimally maintained will be more energy efficient and save money in the long run. Neglected maintenance always cost more in the end as it usually cost more to repair than units that have been maintained and looked after properly. With a motivated staff who will work with all parties to keep your business energy costing control, are valuable employees who need to be rewarded.
