Why you must cut commercial refrigeration energy consumption
There are many reasons why you need to reduce the energy consumption of your commercial refrigeration systems. For one thing, making such reductions can help your business lower its energy costs. More importantly, reducing consumption in these systems can positively impact the environment of your community.

One lesson our experience has taught us is reducing your commercial refrigeration energy consumption is one of the best ways to meet your energy savings and energy cost reduction goals.
One reason your business needs to reduce its commercial refrigeration energy consumption
Our team at Energy Optimization knows reducing your commercial refrigeration energy consumption is vital to lowering your overall energy usage and reducing your energy costs. However, there’s a reason that’s even more important than this, and that’s the positive effect reducing your energy usage could have on the environment in the community your business serves.
According to the Energy Information Administration, commercial refrigeration systems used almost 900 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity in 2017. Our team knows there’s a problem refrigeration systems create with such high energy consumption, and that problem is increased greenhouse gas emissions. In order to create the power used by your business, many power companies still burn fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. The burning of fossil fuels, in turn, releases greenhouse gases such as CO2, methane and nitrous oxide into your community’s air.
Our Energy Optimization team wants to help you find ways to lower the energy used by your refrigeration systems, which may also help reduce the greenhouse gases produced in your community. We offer a variety of services that can help make your systems more energy efficient, including:
- Energy analysis
- Store recommissioning
- Energy management system installation
- Variable speed drive installation
- Anti-sweat system retrofits
Using these and other services we offer, your business can find the tools you need to reduce the energy consumption of your commercial refrigeration systems. Our services may also help you lower your energy bills, allow you to take advantage of utility rebates and allow you to help the environment in your community.
