Commercial Energy Efficiency
Looking for Ways to Make your Business More Energy Efficient?
There are many ways your company could save electricity. Some may seem obvious, like using energy-efficient light bulbs, but there are also “energy vampires” lurking in every commercial building or office space.

- Many more!
Why is it Important for Your Company to Save Energy?
Conserving electricity is good for the environment and for your company’s bottom line. The amount of energy the average commercial building wastes is 30 percent! If you’ve never done anything to save energy at your building, chances are you have areas to improve.
According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, commercial energy use represents nearly 20% of all the energy used in the United States. As a result, there are often state and federal tax credits for improving commercial energy efficiency. Saving electricity also reduces your company’s operating expenses.
Graf Electric can help Reduce your Commercial Energy Use
It’s often possible to reduce energy use by around 10 percent with little cost. Start with simple changes, like adjusting temperature and making sure lights aren’t on when a room is unoccupied. Then get expert help from a licensed electrician who can take you a step further.
