Two reasons you need to improve energy optimization in your restaurant
Our Energy Optimization team knows there are many reasons you need to improve the energy optimization in your restaurant. However, there are two specific reasons that seem to resonate the most with our clients.
The first reason to make such improvements is it increases your profitability. According to Energy Star, restaurants spend up to 2 1/2 times more on electricity per square foot than other commercial buildings. However, this means you’re likely spending more on electricity, too. Energy Optimization can help you find energy retrofits for your business with services such as LED lighting system upgrades, and we can help you create energy reductions for your high-use electrical systems, which may help lower your energy costs and increase your profits.
The second reason you should make energy optimization a goal in your eatery is you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In spite of recent trends toward renewable energy sources, only 17 percent of the energy produced in 2017 came from renewable sources according to the Energy Information Agency. Unfortunately, this means that your restaurant is likely getting its electricity from a coal or natural gas-burning power plant, which contribute to the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. By finding ways to reduce your energy usage, your business makes it possible for your electric company to burn less fossil fuels and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
To help you achieve energy optimization, our team offers a variety of helpful services, such as:
- Variable speed drive installation
- Energy management system upgrades
- Building automated control system installation
- Refrigeration system condenser retrofits
Using these and other services from Energy Optimization, you can make progress toward the goal of achieving energy optimization in your restaurant. In fact, our team is ready and willing to help you achieve this goal. All you have to do to get our help is take one easy step.
