Energy Savings and Tips

Around the Home

Start becoming more energy efficient in the home and start saving. By using less energy in the home, you save on power.

  • Turn your appliances off at the wall when not in use.
  • Keep you freezer defrosted.
  • Fix dripping taps.
  • Turn off lights when leaving a room.
  • Make sure your hot water is set a 55 degrees at the tap.
  • Wash clothes with cold water only.
  • Install a sensor light for outside.
  • Only turn your beer fridge on in the weekends.
  • Use energy saving light bulbs instead of incandescent light bulbs.
  • Turn your heated towel rail off or use a timer to switch it on and off when not in use.





Around the Workplace

50% of the energy used in commercial buildings is under the direct control of the people working in them. So start by leading by example and involve your staff and cleaners in ways that will save energy in your business.

  • Put ‘Turn Off’ signs beside appliances and equipment that use power.
  • Make sure equipment like photocopiers, computers and printers, etc are switched to the power saving mode and hibernate when not being used.
  • Lights are often left on in staff kitchens, toilets and cleaning cupboards when not in use. Start turning these off when you walk out the door.
  • Check and turn off your air-conditioning and heating if office doors and windows are being left open.
  • Put timers on above appliances if they are being left on.
  • A motel/hotel could cut the number of washing and dryer loads by not changing the towels every day if guests are staying more than one night.
Make a staff member responsible for your businesses Energy Saving plans and check every six months that all of the above has been carried out. You will then notice a drop in your energy bills.
