Visual control center features that help save energy in grocery stores
A grocery store is a complex environment that brings many types of systems together to serve its customers. One thing that most of these systems have in common is they use energy. If you’ve been looking for a way to save energy in your grocery store, visual control centers from Energy Optimization offer features that can help you reach this goal.
One feature our visual control centers have is a wall-mounted touchscreen computer. This computer can be integrated with your existing energy management system, and it helps provide easier access to control information for the commercial refrigeration, lighting, HVAC and dehumidification systems your store uses.
A second feature these centers offer is a custom, color-coded floor plan. Every store is a unique place with different systems and layouts. The custom-made floor plan we program into your visual control center is designed to help you better visualize the energy usage of all your systems. The color-coding built into your floor plan also helps you more rapidly identify areas where issues like unoptimized variable speed drives are causing increased energy usage.
Our visual control centers can even provide information about energy issues in your store when you aren’t there. This is possible because our centers can be programmed to send alarm and status emails to your personal computer. They can even be set to deliver emails to your smartphone if there’s a problem with your lighting systems or issues with other systems in your building.
The bottom line is that visual control centers from Energy Optimization create greater system visibility that provides you with many benefits. The biggest of these benefits is they can help you save energy in your grocery store. Our centers may even help you get utility rebates for reducing your energy usage.
