Ten ways to save on electricity at your business

Published on July 16, 2018

Timers, LEDs and energy-saving appliances are some of the options you can use to save energy in your business. Remember that minimising your energy costs is good for your business and for the environment.

Electricity is a fixed expense in your business, regardless of its size. Many people think that if you have a small or medium-sized business it is difficult to make your energy consumption profitable, but there are always ways to save.

If you can avoid skyrocketing consumption and paying large bills by improving how you use electricity in your home, obviously you can do the same thing in your company as well. Consider, for example, that 50% of the consumption of most commercial premises goes to lighting alone.

How can I save electricity in my company?

Here are 10 simple measures you can use to reduce your electricity bill. Don’t forget that it is essential that everyone who works in your company has a commitment to reducing energy consumption.

  • 1- Install automated controls such as sensors and timers so that the lights go out where no one is using them.
  • 2- Verify that you are really using the power you have contracted. Adjusting this can result in savings of up to 20%.
  • 3- Replace incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lamps.
  • 4- Optimise your use of natural light and daytime heat with correct orientation and distribution.
  • 5- Install low-consumption equipment.
  • 6- Set your climate control systems to 25oC in summer and 20oC in winter.
  • 7- Check the air conditioning system approximately every 6 months. This will extend its useful life and improve its daily operation.
  • 8- Declare war on “stand by”. Turn off your company’s computers and televisions if you are not using them: they can make up as much as 60% of your electricity consumption.
  • 9- Don’t forget to turn off photocopiers and printers at night and on weekends.
  • 10- If your company has motors that run continuously or for many hours, install variable speed drivesfor energy savings of up to 50%. These devices control the rotating speed of the machinery, which eliminates energy losses and prolongs the life of both the equipment and the installation.

To save on your bill you should also inquire about the different tariffs and choose the one that best matches your business needs. At Endesa, we can analyse your requirements and draw up a strategy based on your normal consumption, the power you need, contracting additional products, and more.

Choosing the right tariff and following a few simple recommendations can help you save on your electricity bill.
