Falling wholesale energy costs will provide a welcome light on the horizon for many but it really doesn’t hurt to take the opportunity to begin a journey to more efficient energy use for a more sustainable future. There are many low and no cost measures that can be taken to reduce energy bills and reduce the carbon footprint of your club for future generations.
