Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption Reduction Equals Fewer Greenhouse Gasses
Investing in reducing your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption in your supermarket, grocery store or convenience store can lead to returns on your investment that include lower energy bills and lower overall energy usage. However, it can also lead to your community producing fewer greenhouse gasses, which benefits both you and your community. To realize all of these benefits for your business, you’ll need to find a great partner to assist you with reducing your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption.
At Energy Optimization, our team of dedicated professionals has been partnering with businesses just like yours for over 20 years to complete $750 million in energy projects, including commercial refrigeration system optimizations, installations and retrofits. Working on all of these projects has taught us that there are many ways to successfully reduce your commercial refrigeration energy consumption, but the Energy Optimization team has found that one of the best ways to achieve this goal is to retrofit your refrigeration systems with variable frequency drives.
How Variable Frequency Drives Benefit Your Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption and Your Community
If you’ve decided to invest in reducing your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption, then you’re likely already aware of the positive impact that this investment can have on your energy costs and usage. What you may not be aware of is the positive impact that your investment could have on your community as well.
Your investment to reduce your energy consumption benefits your community by allowing your electric company to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses they produce. Greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide contribute to global climate change because they form a barrier in the Earth’s atmosphere that traps heat. In all, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that electricity production in the U. S. accounted for about 28% of our country’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2016.
By lowering the energy consumption of your business, you can help your community to lower the amount of electricity that it must generate, which in turn lowers the amount of fossil fuels burned to create electricity and the amount of greenhouse gasses created.
Energy Optimization can assist you with reducing your energy consumption and benefitting your community, too, by installing variable frequency drives in all of your refrigeration systems. These drives can help you save because they allow you to:
- Precisely control motor speed and electricity input
- Monitor motor torque more closely
- Operate motor at varying voltages depending on cooling requirements
All of these features of variable frequency drives from Energy Optimization can help you to reap the benefits of reducing your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption, which include reduced energy costs, decreased energy usage and lowered greenhouse gas emissions in your community.
