5 Tips To Save Your Business From Energy Price Rises

Words by Zembl

Every year on July 1 most energy retailers will change their energy rates for Australian businesses in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

So what steps can you take to start saving money for your business?

1. Replace bulbs

Quality LED light bulbs last 5 to 10 times longer than halogen light bulbs and consume 25% of the energy to produce the same light output.

2. Check the stars

If you’re looking to introduce or replace outdated appliances in your business it’s key to check the power star rating. Invest in appliances and devices that are as energy-efficient as possible.

3. Standby

From monitors to laptop chargers - devices on ‘standby’ may be responsible for up to 10% of your business energy consumption. Take charge of energy efficiency in your office and ask your team to unplug overnight.

4. Use the sun

Solar energy is a clean, free, and renewable energy source. Solar panels might require an investment up front but that cost can be recovered within few years if solar energy is used to its full extent. There are also solar rebates in some areas that you might be able to take advantage of.

5. Compare and save

It’s quick, simple, and completely free service. Zembl also compares energy companies that offer carbon offset solutions too- so you get to be green & save money on your energy bills.
