  • Move Cleaning services (Industrial & office based) Outside of peak times & where possible use less energy intensive cleaning methods 

Shifting 5 vacuum cleaners and 2 dishwashes = ~200kWh 

Good Maintenance

  • Ensure fridges are not overstocked, left open, and are set to the correct temperature
