Very High Energy Impact on Mac

Using Sourcetree v4 on a 2019 MacBook Pro 15in. If left open in the background, SourceTree is almost always at the top of the MacOS Activity Monitor for Energy usage. Average Energy Impact is listed at 109.  Compared to the next highest being Firefox at 25.6. It's also at the top of CPU, and Disk usage, even when in the background and not in active use.

If I don't remember to completely quit SourceTree when I disconnect from power, it will most assuredly drain my battery.
