Cooling (and heating) makes up about 40% of the energy used in commercial buildings. To keep your HVAC system running efficiently, follow the recommended maintenance schedule. Clean condenser coils, replace air filters, and check ducts and pipe insulation for damage.



Use motion detectors to control lighting in frequently unoccupied areas and photocells to turn lights off automatically when enough daylight is detected. Increase your savings even more by installing energy-efficient products, such as LEDs. 



Turn off office equipment, including 监控 and 打印机, along with lights. Consider upgrading to ENERGY STAR models that shut down or hibernate after inactivity.

Hotter summer temperatures can drive up energy use, and when combined with summer pricing, our customers can experience higher than normal bills during this time.

在夏天, there is also a greater risk for a “Reduce-Your-Use” or "Critical Peak Pricing" Event Day to be called. Event Days happen when the demand for energy spikes in our region or across the state. We may ask customers to conserve energy if they are on a participating pricing plan. On an Event Day, a surcharge is in effect from 4 p.m. 到晚上9点.m. significantly increasing the price of electricity. Combined with on-peak Time-of-Use pricing between 4 p.m. 9点.m., this means businesses who do not conserve on Event Days may receive bills up to 400% higher than average.

A helpful starting point is for customers to log into or sign up for 我的账户. 西班牙&E offers various pricing plan options to give customers more choice and control over their energy use and maximize savings. 我的账户 allows you to compare pricing plans side-by-side to find the one which fits your business’s needs.

在我的账户内, customers can also enroll in text or email alerts and be notified in advance of a Reduce-Your-Use Event Day. Also, customers can elect to receive weekly energy use summaries to stay on top of their bill.

对于一个 附加使用时间(TOU) or Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) plan, managing energy use during peak hours is also important. The highest energy costs occur during the hours of 4 p.m. 9点.m. when the demand for energy is highest throughout the state. 西班牙&E may also call a "Reduce-Your-Use" or "Critical Peak Pricing" Event Day, adding a surcharge to energy used during the hours of 4 p.m. 9点.m. It is critical to be mindful of when you use energy most.

Lastly, there are no-cost actions businesses can take to help reduce their energy use. For example, businesses can

  • Communicate with employees to be mindful of their energy use
  • On Event Days, pre-cool buildings in the early morning hours before 4 p.m.
  • Turn off or set office equipment to power down when not in use
  • Turn off lights or exhaust fans in unoccupied areas that are not necessary for security or safety
  • Seal off unused areas and reduce or eliminate heating or cooling in these spaces
  • 在一天结束的时候, turn off all energy-consuming devices (lights, 厨房设备, 电脑, 监控, 打印机, 复印机, 等.)
  • Consider shifting work schedules for employees. Some manufacturing and industrial companies have shifted their schedules to 6 a.m. 到3点.m.
