Teleport energy costs are soaring. And the average electric bill is enough to bring these star-gazing, satellite-communicating facilities down to earth. Teleports spend between three-hundred-thousand and a million dollars every year to power up everything from heat and air systems to light bulbs, computers and backup generators.  According to the World Teleport Association, basic energy conservation practices and operational efficiencies can cut the average teleport energy bill by an estimated 20-40%.

A growing number of teleport operators are finding their age-old nemesis of excessive energy consumption now has a silver lining – plenty of room for savings. Cutting teleport energy usage through various green initiatives is a relatively easy way to save tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Here’s how a growing number of organizations are doing just that:

  1. The implementation of a comprehensive energy audit. This move will uncover quick and easy energy conservation methods as well as the major capital investments and improvements that could have a dramatic impact on energy consumption at teleports.
  2. Increasing the staff’s energy IQ. This ensures that employees are aware of energy efficient procedures that will make the workplace safer, more comfortable and energy efficient.
  3. Making capital investments in major systems designed to operate more efficiently and save money. Once costs and payback periods are determined, new systems, such as modular generators, virtual servers, and energy-efficient HVAC solutions can have a significant impact on operational costs and community leadership.
  4. Making the move to energy independence. Investments in geothermal, solar and wind systems can provide off-the grid comfort – in the office and on the bottom line. They also provide the capability to turn cost centers into revenue generators.
