Grocery Refrigeration Energy Optimization Provides Immediate Savings
Refrigeration accounts for half of all grocery store energy costs, but grocery refrigeration energy optimization can help reduce those costs by up to 15%. Some simple measures and upgrades can make all the difference in your supermarket energy consumption, and even the smallest changes can mean big savings on your energy bills.
CoolSys Energy Solutions offers several options for optimizing your refrigeration systems.
Variable frequency drives
Your large horsepower motors don’t necessarily need to run at full capacity 100% all the time. We offer expert installation, programming and commissioning of variable frequency drives (VFD’s), which can help reduce energy costs. We can control every available rate of RPM to match specific load requirements, lowering run rates when possible and saving your grocery store money.
Electronically commutated motors
Refrigeration fans are the second highest consumer of energy in a grocery store refrigeration system, behind compressors. Moving to an electronically commutated (EC) motor can be a great way to boost your energy savings. In fact, EC motors can improve your system efficiency by 20-25%.
EMS control installation and upgrades
An energy management system (EMS) can be a great way to efficiently control refrigeration equipment. CoolSys Energy Solutions can evaluate your grocery store and build an efficient and cost-effective EMS control system that provides full temperature visibility for your refrigerated cases, environmental temperature controlled areas and lighting. And to ensure you’re always benefiting from the most up-to-date technology, our EMS upgrades can help you keep your systems running efficiently and protect your product.
