Energy saving products for the workplace


With so much emphasis on reducing energy consumption and costs gadgets can help tell you how much energy you’re using or how much you could save. Can any of these gadgets be used in the workplace to help reduce the amount of energy you’re using and in the process cut business energy costs?

Enviroplug

How many people charge their mobile phones at work? And how many forget to unplug the charger once the phone is fully charged? The enviroplug can help. It keeps an eye on how much energy is going into your mobile phone and as soon as it’s full it cuts the power. It can be used both at home and work and obviously will save money wherever it’s used.

Standby time plug

Along the same lines as the enviroplug is the mobile phone standby timer plug. You can save energy and money by setting the plug to turn off after a given period of time. It’s another good idea if you want to leave your phone charging overnight or while you’re in a meeting.

Solar window charger

If you want to charge your phone for free you can try the solar window charger. This can be stuck to any window whether that’s the one in your office or car and it can even be fixed to a plane window. It’s got a rechargeable lithium battery so you can store power and then charge your phone without it costing anything.

Energy saving lights

Most of us are now aware of different energy saving lights and bulbs that can be used in the workplace and new builds will be built with energy saving in mind. However, if you’ve been in your premises for a while then check your lights and see if they could be changed to energy saving models. You could even get a solar powered lamp for your desk!

This multi socket extension is a good idea for the workplace where many power sockets are in hard to reach places and so difficult to switch off. It’s a multi socket extension cable with a footswitch so you won’t have to clamber under desks to turn off your equipment.

Finally, if you don’t want to use your air con in the summer then maybe you could get your staff a solar fan baseball hat! It’s a baseball cap with a fan attached and is powered by a solar panel on the top. The more the sun shines the faster the fan turns!
