Did you know that most small businesses can achieve annual energy savings of 2-10 percent simply through better energy management practices? NFIB/California has recently joined up with Energy Upgrade California, a statewide customer engagement initiative committed to empowering all Californians and small businesses to lower their cost of doing business by becoming energy stewards. The program aims to help California in its effort to double energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% before 2030 through education and consumer engagement.
“NFIB California, as the voice of small business in California, is proud to be part of the Energy Upgrade California community. Implementing good energy management practices will not only help clean up our environment, but it will mean lower costs of doing business through reduced energy bills. It’s a win-win,” said State Executive Director Tom Scott.
California is known for its innovative and pioneering spirit. That’s part of the reason why the state is a recognized leader in energy conservation. Similarly, our small business community is uniquely positioned to lead in energy conservation to meet our emissions reductions goals while saving on their bottom line.
Empowering Californians, including NFIB California small businesses, to do more is what Energy Upgrade California is all about. That’s why NFIB/California and Energy Upgrade California are inviting you to Do Your Thing™—to help promote energy efficiency across the state of California. It may seem like a daunting task, but it starts with something as simple as the flip of a light switch or the turn of a dial.
