Simple Ways to Help Conserve Electricity This Summer

With the hottest summer months just ahead, employees are encouraged to help conserve electricity by following several simple guidelines.

These easy-to-follow steps will enable Cedars-Sinai to not only reduce costs, but also protect the environment. Please follow the guidelines below, particularly in offices or other nonclinical areas:

  • When able to do so, close window blinds to keep the heat out and the cool in.
  • Close doors when exiting buildings, reducing unnecessary electrical costs in air conditioning.
  • Turn off computers, fax machines, printers and copiers before leaving for home. Devices use power when plugged into power sockets and their lights are on or they're warming up.
  • Unplug laptop cords, cellphone chargers and similar equipment when not in use. They will consume power even if no device is attached.
  • Switch off workspace lights, fans and other electrical items when not needed, particularly when leaving for the day or night, and on weekends.
