Energy saving strategies for businesses during quarantine

JACKSON, Wyo. — Energy Conservation Works of Jackson Hole is leading Week 3 of Quaran-Green, a six-week green challenge for businesses during the COVID-19 shutdown, as the topic expert on this week’s theme: Energy.

ECW has issued a list of four challenges for businesses that have moved from an office setting to a work-at-home setting.

  • Challenge 1: Look into purchasing green power or have LVE send you a report.
  • Challenge 2: Set back your thermostats and unplug appliances not being used during the closure.
  • Challenge 3: Working from home? Do a walk through and perform energy-saving maintenance, such as caulking windows, switching to LED bulbs and unplugging unused appliances.
  • Challenge 4: Apply for an energy audit (residential or commercial) with Lower Valley Energy.

Share your accomplishments on social media by tagging #quarangreenjh.

Over the coming weeks, the Quaran-Green challenge will focus on additional aspects of sustainability and include basic steps that any size or type of organization can undertake.
