With 2011 just days away, GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. encourages and assists companies of all sizes with efforts to identify and adopt strategies that fully incorporate the various incentive programs offered through their local utilities. These programs provide significant monetary incentives for acting on projects that improve energy efficiency and pays consumers for participating in periodic consumption reductions (Demand Response or DR) — increasing a business’ bottom line for the coming year.
Many experts in the energy field agree that small changes often have the largest impact. For example, commercial buildings can easily raise (or lower during the winter) the set points on HVAC systems by a few degrees (+/-) and have a significant financial impact over their entire portfolio. Many well-known companies such as Wal-Mart and Target are reaping noteworthy benefits from simple measures such as this. GRHU also advises businesses to keep conditioned air inside the spaces meant to be conditioned. For example, a retailer may operate with their doors wide open on a hot summer day, allowing cool air to escape the space intended to be cooled off. That’s obviously a wasteful practice of significant proportions. Businesses should spend its cost savings on growing the business, not inflating their utility bills.
Another efficiency solution and sustainable infrastructure improvement a business should consider in 2011 is investing in solar covered parking. Reducing the influence of the elements on a parked vehicle significantly reduces “heating up or cooling down” time, resulting in a reduction in fuel consumption. Much more energy (fuel) is required to cool a car from 120Â° to 100Â° than 90Â° to 70Â°. Additionally, the energy produced by the solar PV can offset the requirements for utility-provided electricity as well as generate income through selling excess capacity to the utility. GRHU also recommends using Cool-Wall products for reducing the impact of radiant heat on the exposed surfaces of a building. Cool-Wall is documented to last much longer than traditional paints which potentially will reduce significant building maintenance expenses.
