How can I save electricity in my company?
Here are 10 simple measures you can use to reduce your electricity bill. Don’t forget that it is essential that everyone who works in your company has a commitment to reducing energy consumption.
1- Install automated controls such as sensors and timers so that the lights go out where no one is using them.
2- Verify that you are really using the power you have contracted. Adjusting this can result in savings of up to 20%.
3- Replace incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lamps.
4- Optimise your use of natural light and daytime heat with correct orientation and distribution.
5- Install low-consumption equipment.
6- Set your climate control systems to 25ºC in summer and 20ºC in winter.
7- Check the air conditioning system approximately every 6 months. This will extend its useful life and improve its daily operation.
8- Declare war on "stand by". Turn off your company’s computers and televisions if you are not using them: they can make up as much as 60% of your electricity consumption.
9- Don’t forget to turn off photocopiers and printers at night and on weekends.
10- If your company has motors that run continuously or for many hours, install variable speed drivesfor energy savings of up to 50%. These devices control the rotating speed of the machinery, which eliminates energy losses and prolongs the life of both the equipment and the installation.
To save on your bill you should also inquire about the different tariffs and choose the one that best matches your business needs. At Endesa, we can analyse your requirements and draw up a strategy based on your normal consumption, the power you need, contracting additional products, and more.
