Many of Minnesota’s largest businesses are actively engaging in energy conservation. Big companies with big facilities are realizing big savings when they reduce energy consumption. The sustainability leaders at these companies deserve our recognition and praise. Keep up the great work!
But what about home offices? Are we doing all we can to conserve energy at our home-based businesses and home offices? Not so much. When you add up the potential energy savings across hundreds of thousands of home offices in Minnesota alone, this is a market segment that deserves our attention.
If you have a home office, you may not realize there are great resources available to help your space be more energy efficient. Information, services and rebates are offered through residential energy efficiency programs across the state. Many conservation strategies cost little or no money, and can return significant savings.
Bring the savings home! You may have opportunities to reduce energy costs for your business and your family. Contact Minnesota Energy Smart with your questions, and see Energy.gov for more tips for saving money and energy at home.
