There are a lot of opportunities for saving money and energy in small business operations.  If you are the owner of a small business or have a favorite small business that you would like to see thrive, this week is for you. 

The average commercial enterprise has annual energy usage that amounts to: 74,424 kWh of electricity, costing $9,250 and emitting 39,370 pounds of CO2…. 7,031 therms of natural gas, costing $6,174 and emitting 79,818 pounds of CO2 

The NJ Board of Public Utilities has a Direct Install program that makes it really easy to install energy efficient lighting, upgrade heating and cooling systems, and improve other systems such as refrigeration.

Over the next few days, we will share videos that tell the story of 6 Mercer County Institutions that have used the Direct Install program and couldn’t be happier.
