Sav­ing en­ergy and money

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Commercial -

SWITCH off, wrap up, con­trol – th­ese were the three key slo­gans put to Ash­ford busi­nesses to help them save en­ergy and money dur­ing the fi­nan­cial cri­sis.

Erica Rus­sell of Busi­ness Link Kent gave com­pany bosses ad­vice on turn­ing off and con­trol­ling heat­ing and in­su­la­tion dur­ing a Greener in the Work­place con­fer­ence. The event, for small and medium-sized busi­nesses and vol­un­tary groups, was held at Sin­gle­ton En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre.

Mar­ket­ing de­vel­op­ment man­ager Miss Rus­sell ad­vised firms to switch off lights in work­places while un­used; wrap up by insulating to save money in the win­ter and keep cool in the sum­mer, and con­trol by mak­ing sure the heat­ing is off when no one is in.
