VEC encourages businesses to conserve energy and benefit our members and environment.

Use these ways to save energy to run your business comfortably and economically:

  • Buy computers, printers, scanners and copiers with the federal government's Energy Star® label for efficient electricity use.
  • Buy multi-function machines rather than stand-alone copiers, faxes and scanners.
  • Set your computer to "sleep" mode when you leave for extended periods of time.
  • Use compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to save energy and cut pollution.
  • Use the printer when making three copies or less; for more, use the copier.
