PSE spokesperson Krysti Nice will address the BBC on energy cost efficiency for your small/home business.
Do you sometimes forget to turn off your coffee maker or robot-maker in your home-office laboratory? Do you sometimes leave the lights on downstairs when you’re upstairs in your castle workshop making … stuff?
There are an estimated 18 million home-based business owners, 24 million telecommuters, and an unfathomable number of unemployed folks conducting job searches from their own PCs. For the growing number of these Americans working from home, higher energy bills for combined home offices and residences are on the rise and taking a big knick out of precious resources—and our pocket books.
Higher electricity bills to power office equipment and lighting, heating and cooling, are an inevitable cost of doing business from home. Trips to the kitchen for meals and snacks and to other areas of the home for various needs also suck up electricity, especially when lights, appliances, and electronics in other rooms aren’t turned off (or unplugged) when they are no longer in use. The challenge of keeping home office energy bills from eating up our profits is particularly tough during this weird weather we have had, and now a hot summer that will inspire home workers to run air conditioning for longer periods.
Given these challenges, PSE (pse.com) has tips for home-based entrepreneurs, telecommuters—and even job-seekers—to help reduce energy costs while staying comfortable and “taking care of business.” PSE’s Krysti Nice will be visiting the BBC tomorrow and has asked that we bring a copy of our power bills so she can analyze what people might consider doing to save money on future bills, as well as being kinder to the environment.Tim Longley
