So, where do you start?
Take a cue from the Energy Conservation and Efficiency Pyramid, the easiest way to get your home or business on track with bite-sized steps. Here’s how:
1. Firstly, conserve. Sometimes, the smartest moves are the simplest ones. The math is clear: less electricity means less energy, so cut out those phantom loads, turn off lights when you leave rooms, and use smart power strips.
2. Secondly, maximize. Why not make the most of what you do use with small adjustments to keep your energy usage as efficient as possible? Update office appliances and equipment or switch out your lighting to energy-efficient LED bulbs. Take advantage of our expertise: Reach out to Hawaii Energy for a business assessment or audit.
