IN­NO­VA­TIVE BUSI­NESSES BOOST MORE THAN THE BOTTOM LINE WHILE SAV­ING EN­ERGY

Industry Leaders - - Latest in business -

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.
