Going green enhances sustainability and can save businesses thousands of dollars in utility costs annually. From lighting systems to office equipment and appliances, business owners can make changes for greater efficiency.
Lighting impacts employee morale and productivity. Advances in technology make it possible to replace traditional bulbs and fixtures with improved lighting systems. New incandescent, halogen, fluorescent and high-intensity discharge lighting systems are efficient alternatives. Working with qualified electricians or advisors will help in the selection process.
Other areas to improve energy efficiency include:
- HVAC systems
- Refrigeration units
- Facility structures and exteriors
- Food service equipment
If replacing existing office equipment or capital assets, look for Energy Star qualified products. Tax implications are also another benefit of enhancing energy efficiency. State and federal incentives are available for qualified products. Checking with your state tax agency and the IRS will yield a complete listing of the rebates available.
Energy efficient businesses are socially responsible and help protect the environment for future generations. To learn more about energy efficiency and wealth generation in the Los Angeles area, please contact Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program.
