INNOVATIVE BUSINESSES BOOST MORE THAN THE BOTTOM LINE WHILE SAVING ENERGY
Many businesses are realizing a myriad of secondary, if not unanticipated, benefits from energy saving initiatives, making these projects a high priority for growth among forward-thinking organizations.
The benefits of energy-efficient practices far exceed the significant monetary savings that come from simply using less energy. A more efficient facility may offer a better and safer working environment, which raises productivity. A pleasing and comfortable atmosphere enhances the customer experience, leading to increased traffic. Socially conscious customers recognize, and reward, a business’ efforts to actively participate in reducing its impact on the environment. And, yes, a more efficient facility costs less money to operate-up to 30% less.
Businesses don’t have to go it alone to become more efficient. Energy providers, such as National Grid, can provide guidance and offer incentives that make the initial investment more affordable, allowing for a shorter payback period. Here are two recent examples from businesses that partnered with National Grid to achieve their goals.
