As energy prices continue to rise 3 to 28%, many business owners are looking for ways to cut costs and improve profits permanently. Making your business energy efficient could dramatically cut down on your utilities. Most buildings can benefit from energy efficiency improvements but there are certain things that can improve your return-on-investment. Here are four simple ways to look for and receive the highest return-on-investment from energy efficiency improvements.

As a Tennessee business owner, I understand that clean, renewable sources of energy are essential to the short- and long-term sustainability of our communities. It is reasonable and feasible to envision an economy in which energy is abundant, clean and delivered in ways that foster economic growth without compromising either our environment or public health.
The Clean Power Plan proposed by EPA is good for Tennessee. Robert Martineau, our commissioner of Environment and Conservation, released for public comment last December his department’s views on the draft standards proposed for our state. Although the science and engineering issues are technical, the document is thorough and, I believe, a well-balanced response.

Dunlap Industries reduced their energy consumption by 38% through energy efficiency.
The Ways of Warehouses and Other Large Facilities
Assessing industrial and commercial spaces for efficiency upgrades
Like many business leaders, Robert Kwasnik, president of Tennessee-based Dunlap Industries, wants his business to use natural resources more efficiently. Beyond the business case, and beyond his belief that the country’s politics have tilted in a direction that favors greener solutions, Kwasnik says his taste for energy efficiency came from his Christian faith. “I feel like I am charged by my God to be a good steward of the environment, and it’s just something that I take to heart and take seriously,” he says.
But before Kwasnik could reduce Dunlap’s energy consumption at their manufacturing warehouse, he had to assess it. For that, he spoke with EES (Energy Efficiency & Sustainability) Consulting. Dunlap is a manufacturer and distributor of zippers, thread, hook, loop and related textile trim.
