According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy,
commercial buildings account for 19% of the energy consumed in the U.S. and
more than half of that energy used goes towards heating and lighting.
Every dollar you save in energy costs has a corresponding environmental
benefit. Energy efficiency reduces the levels of fossil fuels consumed,
which also reduces the environmental impacts of drilling, mining, and air
pollution by lowering plant emissions. Global warming, acid rain, and the
brown smog clouds over our cities are very real problems that every
organization can fight by becoming more energy efficient. A Financial Energy
customer produced these reductions in an energy efficient retrofit of just
- Coal Burning Avoided Annually: 4,415,660 lbs.
- CO2 Emissions Avoided Annually: 14,424,490 lbs.
- CO2 Equivalent in Trees (trees each absorb 13 lbs. of CO2 per year:
Since the completion of our first energy saving project in 1984,
Financial Energy has saved and continues to save hundreds and thousands of
kilowatt hours (kWh) and cubic feet of natural gas for numerous businesses.
An investment in energy efficiency is not only an investment in your
business, but also an investment in the community and the planet.
It is our standard practice to make sure that all materials used or
replaced, as part of our jobs, be recycled. All our customers receive a
certificate from the recycler proving we’ve recycled the materials with
their job appropriately. All retrofitted lighting ballasts containing PCBs
(polychlorinated biphenyls) are incinerated, a permanent and safe disposal
method. Mercury from lamps is harvested and recycled along with all other
non-toxic retrofitted components to reduce the use of raw materials.
