Energy Efficiency In Supermarkets: Variable Frequency Drives
One of the roadblocks to improving energy efficiency in supermarkets may be the electrical motors that power your commercial refrigeration systems.
One way to break down this roadblock is to retrofit your existing electrical motors with variable frequency drives.
However, you’ll have to find a high-quality retrofitting team to help you with this improvement to the energy efficiency in your supermarket in order to get the maximum benefits offered by variable frequency drives.
Our team at Energy Optimization has been assisting businesses across the country with high-quality energy efficiency upgrades, retrofits and installations ever since 1995.
In our more than two decades in business, we’ve helped the businesses we partnered with to complete more than $750 million in energy efficiency projects.
With all of this experience under our belt, the team at Energy Optimization knows all of the ways to effectively improve energy efficiency in supermarkets, which is why we offer you efficiency improvement services like our variable frequency drive retrofit service.
Benefits that high-efficiency variable frequency drives have for energy efficiency in supermarkets
One of the biggest factors in increasing energy efficiency in supermarkets is the electrical motors running your refrigeration systems.
The reason these motors are one of the biggest efficiency factors is that there are so many of them since they’re used to run multiple parts of your commercial refrigeration equipment.
Since there are so many electrical motors in your store, upgrading them to variable frequency drives can be a significant step in improving the energy efficiency of your food retail location.
Variable frequency drives typically consist of an alternating current motor, a drive controller and an easy-to-use user interface.
This electro-mechanical drive system is designed specifically to save you electricity by more precisely controlling the speed of the alternating current motor by varying the input frequency and voltage to the motor.
This means that variable frequency drives can reduce the amount of electricity the motor uses at times when the motor doesn’t need to run as hard instead of using the same amount of electricity all the time like most conventional electric drives.
The team at Energy Optimization wants to help you take advantage of the many benefits offered by variable frequency drives, and in order to make it easy for you to upgrade your electrical motors, we offer our variable frequency drive upgrade service.
This upgrade service can offer you a variety of benefits, which include:
- The ability to save you up to 65% of the energy used by the electrical motors in your commercial refrigeration systems
- The capability of better optimizing the running of your electrical motors
- The ability to improve the service life of your electrical motors and reduce the amount of maintenance they require
Thanks to these and other benefits, the variable frequency drive upgrade service from Energy Optimization can help you improve the energy efficiency in your supermarket and also significantly reduce your monthly energy bills.
