5 hidden culprits draining your business electricity

In these uncertain times, keeping business costs to a minimum makes sense, but sometimes even with the best energy consumption lowering plan in action, your business electricity bill can come in unexpectantly high. We all know to switch off lights when they’re not in use and to turn off desktops and monitors before heading home but what about these secret hidden offenders?

Light bulbs

If you haven’t already switched to energy-saving LED lightbulbs this should be first on your to-do list. LED lightbulbs use up to 90% less energy than old fashioned incandescent lightbulbs, that’s a considerable saving! Not only that, but they’re also better for the environment, which is great if you are trying to create a sustainable office environment.

Office showers

Providing a shower for staff to use in the office is a great way to encourage employees to cycle to work and or go for a run at lunch. However, depending on the type of shower you have installed, this could be bumping up your energy bills. Consider installing a shower with a valve that shuts off automatically, like the type found in gyms, which only run for a limited period of time. This will encourage staff to take shorter showers and cut down on wasted hot water.

The kettle

Offices run on tea and coffee. Banning hot drinks in the office will only lead to tired and unhappy staff, in addition to making you very unpopular! But one way you can get around this is to encourage teams to go for tea breaks together. This means that the kettle will be boiled fewer times. It’s also a great way to encourage a friendly working environment and can help to foster positive working relationships.

Printers and photocopiers

This might sound a bit shocking, but many businesses nowadays are choosing to go paperless and do away with printers and photocopiers altogether. If you have a large office you might want to reduce the number of printers that you have – having to do the extra walk or queue for longer is likely to put employees off sending any unnecessary jobs to print.

Being with the wrong business energy supplier

If you’ve done everything you can to be more sustainable but still find yourself with a surprisingly large bill at the end of every month, it could be that you’re simply with the wrong provider or on the wrong plan.
