This time of year, kids who celebrate Christmas are on extra good behavior. Why? Because Santa is watching, and there are singing Elsa dolls and MetalBeard LEGO sets at stake if they’re not.
There’s a lesson in here for energy managers who want better behavior—not from their kids, but from their buildings. Regardless of how closely you monitor facilities this time of year, the holiday rush can result in costly, inefficient energy usage.
But you better not pout; instead, take a cue from the man of the season himself and some of our friends at General Mills, Lodge Cast Iron, and the Massachusetts Department of Energy (DOER), on how to get ahead of naughty inefficiencies this season.
