Affordable Green for the Small-Business Owner
Save Energy, Save Money
The small-business owner is the engine that quietly drives the economy of the United States. The man or woman who owns a restaurant, starts a laundromat or opens an auto-repair shop is the person who makes the nation run.
But as a small-business owner, you also know about tight profit margins.
Reducing your energy use will save you money, pure and simple.
The Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that a small business can expect a 10% to 30% reduction in energy use by using energy-saving measures and replacing inefficient equipment with Energy Star®-rated equipment.
Just think what you could do with the money you save. Hire that extra chef, repaint the walls–buy the new computer you need.
