Business offers electric savings

Nathan Domenighini

Energy consumption is an unpredictable cost that can catch many businesses off guard.

Computers, lights, phones, printers and fax machines are all necessities in today’s businesses. And, with rising costs in energy, some companies find it hard to keep the lights on in the office.

This situation prompted one local business to provide a service that may seem too good to be true.

But, Mark Rhodes, an energy specialist for Total Energy Concepts, says his company has found a way to keep energy bills down while helping reduce maintenance costs as well.

Mark Rhodes of Morton is an energy specialist for Total Energy Concepts.

“We haven’t even touched the surface here,” Rhodes said.

Rhodes said he is excited to get more businesses going with Total Energy Concept’s energy-saving procedures.

The company guarantees businesses will save 15 percent on energy costs if they use Total Energy Concept’s system.

“We are a total energy optimization company,” Rhodes said.

“(Our system) is guaranteed to reduce kilowatt hour usage by 15 percent.”

“We’re not going to come in and tell you to turn your lights off,” he said.
