In one of our latest blogs, we spoke about how much money Australia could save – it was up in the billions! But now I want to focus on how much money YOU can save – especially those of you who run small businesses.

For the small business owner, chances are you focus your time on running your own business rather thinking about the energy that keeps the business going (which is as it should be – good choice). However, cash flow can be tight enough at the best of times, so there’s no point in wasting money on energy if you don’t have to.

We all know how valuable those dollars can be, so I recommend you jump on board the energy efficiency train! If you’re in business energy efficiency really can pay serious dividends.
