Easy Steps to Save Energy Today




As the snow falls on the fells and the wind whistles through the trees, it’s nice to come home and get warm and dry... not so nice to receive that huge energy bill!




Luckily there are practical steps you can take right away to reduce your energy bills - here are my top 5:

  1. Measure and monitor energy use, to find out where your energy is going and where it might be wasted.
  2. Raise awareness among staff and visitors, because small changes can lead to big savings.
  3. Embrace new technologies, from timer switches to LED lights to solar panels - they could be a solution to your problem.
  4. Learn from other businesses, tell us about your business and we can tell you about real energy saving success stories.
  5. Make a plan of action, so that you can keep on track, and celebrate your successes!

And you don’t have to go it alone. For advice and support with any of these energy efficiency steps in your business, send an email to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and receive a free audit tailored to suit your business.
