Do you remember the 2006 energy crisis? As we enter the New Year, many seem to forget that just a few months ago we faced a culmination of the worst energy problems of our time.
Record high costs for gasoline and electricity, severe blackouts and don’t forget how 2006 began…with over a month of rain that experts attribute to pollution emitted from our energy addiction.
Volatile energy cost, energy security and global warming are massive problems and back in 1994, we created Energy Industries to help solve these problems.
In our beginning we had no office and operated a one person company from a car. Today we have become a global enterprise with 12 offices from Houston to Honolulu to Hong Kong.
The secret to the Energy Industries success is through our “Evolution of Energy” approach. We saw an evolution in lifestyle choices that led people to live “technology rich.” This meant more computers, more televisions, more air conditioning and unfortunately, more demand for more energy.
To help keep energy bills down, Energy Industries decided to evolve from a traditional contracting company and push the envelope, becoming a leader in all energy technologies.
We introduced to Hawaii some of the newest efficient lighting and efficient air condition technologies.
We also incorporated onsite power generation using pollution free, renewable power. Today EI has installed prominent and award winning systems that include Photovoltaic power, Fuel Cells and Concentrated Solar Power Sopogy systems.
In the end, our services save energy.
Our customers use that savings to pay for our services. In addition, many of our energy solutions receive rebates, incentives and tax credits.
This translates into a rare occurrence in business, a situation where everyone wins!
Here are a few tips to help you save energy today.
First, change your light bulbs to compact fluorescent lamps. These lamps look like a spiral ice cream cone and screw right in.
They even help you to save as much as $30 a year each!
Similar to a leaking faucet, energy can leak in the form of heat, so even when electrical devices are not being used, they still consume some energy. By unplugging or turning off your power strips you’ll stop the energy leaks and save money.
This savings could be around $5 per power strip per year.
The next tip is geared to help you save money at the pump.
When driving on the freeway, its best to roll your windows up. The additional drag caused by open windows will affect your mileage and ultimately your wallet.
By rolling up your windows on the freeway you could save over $300 per year.
We hope these tips will be a good first step in your war on wasted energy.
Don’t be caught by surprise and don’t let the energy problem slip to back of mind.
Energy costs will increase, energy use will increase and our energy pollution damages our world for generations to come. You must be diligent in controlling energy and always remember that Energy Industries is there to help.
