NightOwl Convenience stores retail franchise in Mount Pleasant Queensland, has been selected as part of Ergon’s Energy Sense campaign to have their energy used audited and reduced.
The Energy Sense campaign aims to educate local business and the community about how small changes to the way they use electricity, can make a big difference to their electricity and the environment.
Franchisee of the NightOwl Convenience store Kirsty Sivyer said she is excited to see where the store can cut their energy bill and make changes that are good for the store’s bottom line.
“Operating a business can be costly, so it’s going to be very beneficial to see where can make a saving on our energy bill. The flow-on effect will be a reduction of our carbon footprint, which we see as a contribution not just to the local community, but to our global community as a whole,” she said.
The Ergon Energy Sense campaign will pinpoint the ways businesses can become more energy efficient the short term, and will also provide guidance on equipment upgrades and workplace design to improve efficiency in the long term.
The energy audit of the NightOwl Convenience store in North Mackay has been carried out and the results of the findings will be released in October. The store will then implement a package of improvements designed to help reduce energy, worth up to $2,000.
