There are many ways to increase the energy efficiency of your business. Some require simple adjustments and other routes require additional planning and initial investment. Whichever actions you choose, your business will benefit greatly.

Though they are slightly more expensive, they provide more light, give off less heat and last much longer. You can also choose LED lamps that use 80% less energy but last 10 times longer than traditional bulbs.
