A Very Green Business

A Very Green Business

Here at PUSH Green, we spend a lot of time getting homes for families energy efficient and saving them money. But did you know we do the same for commercial customers as well?

We believe that the business owner deserves to save money on their utilities and keep their business or non-profit energy efficient. 

Funding will be available to qualified small commercial and non-profit businesses for purposes of making eligible capital improvements that prepare the building for installation of comprehensive energy efficiency retrofit measures through NYSERDA’s Green Jobs - Green NY (GJGNY).

You'll have to give us a call to schedule a one-on-one with our commercial energy advocate, Sheila, at 716-886-1780 and she can tell you all about getting a free energy audit, too!

In the meantime there are things you can do to your building to start saving some money. It makes a difference in the long run!

Computers

  • Consider buying a laptop for your next computer upgrade. They use less energy than desktop computers.

 

Doors

  • Install door bottoms, threshold, or door “shoes” to seal gaps beneath exterior doors.

 

Lighting

  • Save on your lighting maintenance costs by investing in ENERGY STAR-qualified LED lights. ENERGY STAR-qualified LEDs last 35 to 50 times longer than incandescent lighting and 2 to 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting. They also come with a minimum three-year warranty and will even help reduce your cooling costs since they produce very little heat.

 

Water Heaters

  • Buy an ENERGY STAR-qualified water heater. In areas of infrequent use, consider tankless water heaters to reduce standby storage costs and waste.
