The arrival of summer not only brings an increase in temperature, but also a significant demand for energy.
During summer months demand far exceeds supply and puts an undue burden on the utility/power plants to produce enough power. In an effort to prevent shortages to surrounding communities, all large energy users such as Staples are asked to do their share by voluntarily reducing their energy use during times of heat waves and high temperatures. These shortages can lead to total blackouts and loss of power, that if occur will significantly impact business.
Staples is committed to environmental sustainability and participates in “Demand Response” which is designed to help the utility companies and businesses reduce demand. Attached is more information about this program that includes the most frequently asked questions.
We appreciate your understanding during times of energy reduction. Please contact Facilities Management with any questions or concerns.
