When you’re at home, if you’re conscious of energy efficiency, you will be trying to save energy to cut back on your bills and it shouldn’t be any different in your business environment too. While commercial energy from British Gas is some of the most competitively priced available on the market, reducing your business energy bills, there’s no harm in trying to reduce your consumption too. It’ll not only help in your mission to reduce your overheads, but it is also a great opportunity to be a little green and kind to the environment too.

Little changes can make a big difference within a business environment, especially if you can get your staff members on board to help keep up the changes. If you’re with a supplier that you believe is charging you over the odds for your gas and electricity, consider switching to British Gas. Their tariffs are competitive and various options are available to suit your requirements. Plus, the switchover process is simple and will cause no downtime to your business.

The summer months are a perfect time to implement changes to your business environment. Turn the thermostat down by 1 degree and turn off radiators that aren’t in use. Do you really need the radiator on in the kitchen, where staff members only really go to make a brew and a sandwich? Probably not, so turn it off during the summer, at least.

Change your light bulbs to energy saving ones and invest in motion-sensor fluorescent strips in walkways and storerooms that don’t need to be lit constantly. If you have the necessary funds, upgrade your computer equipment to the modern, energy efficient equivalents. Turning appliances to a lower energy state when the office is out of hours will also save on unnecessary energy use.

Saving money on your business energy bills isn’t as difficult as it sounds. With a little forethought and staff incentives where necessary, you can reduce your energy consumption in no time.
