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.
Recycle paper to reduce energy use and pollution.
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.
