How to Become More Energy Efficient

Efficiency First from WGL Energy makes energy efficiency improvements easy.


Did you know that buildings account for 40% of the world's energy consumption?

It’s easier than ever for businesses like yours to make energy efficiency improvements in their buildings, allowing you to save money and reach your sustainability goals at the same time. Efficiency First from WGL Energy Services (WGL Energy) offers you the benefits of long-term savings, improved operations and the convenience of working with one partner.

To get started, WGL Energy brings a team of energy experts to your site, where we’ll complete an energy audit and develop a customized plan for achieving your energy management and sustainability goals. We’ll identify opportunities for energy efficiency upgrades – like LED lights, HVAC controls, reflective window coverings and more – and create a payment plan that works for your budget.

There is no upfront capital requirement. In fact, the energy savings you achieve will offset your equipment and installation costs, freeing up capital for investment elsewhere in your business. Efficiency First projects come with a multi-year fixed price for electricity, so you are protected from changing market conditions and unpredictable electricity supply prices. What’s more, we’ll manage all of the project complexities, so you can focus on managing and growing your business.
