The Greening of More than Produce

Admin on September 21, 2015

How many commercial buildings can aim for a 10 percent reduction in energy costs and realize a complimentary increase of profits in the range of 5% to 10%? Grocery stores can claim to be the heaviest users of energy of any type of U.S. commercial building with ranges on average of 1% to 1.5% of their revenue. With refrigeration and lighting creating the highest demand – both are great places to grocers to tap for energy savings. As Lisa Stanley, VP Product Management for the U.S. Green Building Council laments – supermarkets have more work to do. We agree…and we can help. We’ve been placing air curtains at the entry-ways and at the refrigeration units for decades. Ask us about how we’ve helped chains like Whole Foods take a bite out of energy costs and let us design a plan for you.
