Put Smart Energy on the Agenda
Investing in energy improvements can significantly reduce operating costs in office buildings of all sizes. There are many options, from operations and maintenance changes to lighting upgrades and renewable energy systems. Energize Connecticut helps you make smart choices, with expert advice, resources and energy-saving programs tailored to your needs.
Energy use is the single largest operating expense in office buildings, representing approximately one-third of typical operating budgets. Energy-saving improvements can help office buildings reduce energy costs by up to 35 percent1. Renewable energy systems can generate electricity or heat that can lower and stabilize your energy costs over time. These savings allow building owners to focus more resources on meeting core business objectives. Beyond energy cost savings, improving energy performance can enhance comfort, boost productivity and reduce operations and maintenance costs.
