Power consumed at a commercial garage is usually high. Sometimes the bills freaks me. Iím trying hard to reduce the power consumption but not very effective. I plan to reshape my garage storage[/url] so that more natural light can pass through reducing the power consumption considerably. I am thinking of reshaping the interior and exterior of the garage to give it a fresh look by hiring a interior designing company. I doubt that whether it is a good idea or not. Looking forward to your suggestions. Thank you!

What I find funny is that so many people install insulated garage doors, but yet the walls & attic space above them aren't.
The best system IMO is a detached garage with a covered walkway, which will not only help eliminate numerous screw-ups, but worries & issues with CO poisoning.
Solatube (and others) are great for garage lighting.

For Making Your Garage More Efficient. Seal the Doors. The connecting door between the garage and the main house can be a big energy drain. Insulate the Garage Walls. Insulate Your Garage Door. Insulate Outlets and Light Switches. Insulate Your Windows. Caulk Cracks in the Walls and Floor. Insulate the Concrete Floor.

Natural lighting is of course very good. But you did not think to install a light bulb? They shine very well, but at the same time they consume little electricity.

One time investment use solar panel than u will get rid of bills.

Other than all the above suggestions...
I had a customer with several large power hogs to the point if he turned them all on at once he would exceed hes electrical service supply.
We installed some current alarms on his electrical system to alert him is the power exceeded a certain level. It helped stopped tripping breakers and made him ore aware of his electrical use.

Natural light coming from the outside will save power costs.

If you want to reduce power consumption at garage then use alternative sources of energy saving and power. The best way to save energy is to contact energy consultants they suggest you the method how to save energy and reduce power consumption.

My suggestions is to go for energy efficient windows like Double-Hung or Casement windows which is the perfect option to let go the air and light into your garage.

I use natural light in my garage after i replaced my florecent lights and the lighting makes a huge difference. It looks like a whole new garage and much more brigther than before.

If you are exchanging air in a working garage you will likely benefit from one of these. At the correct size you will recover 70-90% of the energy of the exchange between incoming and outgoing air. A slight positive pressure in the building overall and eliminate the drafts you will notice the energy savings.

using natural lights is great idea

Decrease the standby power consumption of the other components in the appliance. Because the standby power consumption of the low-voltage power supply is proportional to the amount of power it supplies at any given moment, decreasing the power it provides to the other standby components decreases its own standby losses as well.

As others have stated there are many things that impact the energy bill and in no specific order: Insulation, Air Exchange per hours, HVAC efficency, lighting, and any other high amperage devices being used.
If this is a automotive shop its not like you can turn off the compressor when its under use. The only recourse is to increase the size of the holding tank which will reduce the amount of on time. If (Human) wants to stay toasty warm at 75'F during the dead of winter and the GDO bay doors are constantly being open.
There isn't anything you can do besides hurry the guy who's driving the car into the shop to move as quick as possible.
But as I stated up top this basic scenario impacts air exchanges per hour. You simply can't expect your heating bill to be low if a busy place of business is always opening / closing the bay doors.
The list is endless but the basics have been provided which anyone should really consider.

Hi there, I agree that natural lighting will help you or try out big ceiling light.

Maybe you can share us the details of the garage (size, materials, and possibly the bills!)

Increasing natural light will certainly save on lighting energy. But, if it's a commercial garage, then it's unlikely that lighting is a major source of power consumed.
What other electrical devices are used in the garage?
