The Green Things We Do
None of us will argue that we have limited resources. U4 sees it as we have no choice but to conserve our resources. When you reduce you also save. But it takes a combination of Green practices to see the real savings.
U4 has focused on two areas of reduction, Energy and Paper.
Reduction in the amount of electricity actually has two savings.
- Energy efficient lights saves both electricity and reduce heat
- LCD Monitors saves both electricity and reduce heat
- Reflective roofing reduces heat and electrical cooling needs
- Solar panels reduce the amount of electricity needed
When you combine all the reductions in electricity use and the reduction in heat production from a change of equipment you also reduce the cost of cooling. Add in better insulation and reflective roofing you get even more savings in cooling. This is where the real energy saving from start to compound.
It is not one but all the savings that really add up.
Reduction of the amount of paper you use saves an incredible amount over the year. U4 emails bills, charges a paper bill fee, and has a paperless office.
