Which type of refrigeration are you using?

 

Commercial Refrigeration

For cold storage facilities, convenience stores, grocery stores, restaurants and banquet facilities

 

 

Industrial Refrigeration

For seafood and meat processing, fruit and vegetable storage, chemical products and plastics industries

 

 

Refrigeration could eat up 90% of your electricity bill – upgrade to save

If you operate one of these businesses, you may find that refrigeration accounts for a large portion of your electricity bill.  

These are typical examples:

  • Cold storage facilities up to 90%
  • Convenience stores up to 70%
  • Grocery stores up to 50%
  • Restaurants up to 30%
  • Banquet facilities up to 30%
   

This table shows how you can save. Remember that by keeping your refrigeration system in top operating condition, you save in two ways: you reduce energy consumption and increase the lifespan of your equipment.

 

Paybacks can be months, not years

With refrigeration, small improvements can net big efficiency results. It’s worth spending the time to review your system, or have a contractor evaluate it, to see where you can find potential savings. Even something as small as changing the lighting to energy-efficient LEDs, which give off very low heat, can make a difference.

We’ll help you find the best route to energy savings

The easiest way to get started is to contact one of our Energy Experts who have specific expertise in your sector. You’ll get help prioritizing your savings and applying for one or more incentive programs.  

Our experts can connect you with a qualified professional to conduct an energy audit or engineering study to support your application.


Choose from two incentive program paths

  • RETROFIT PROGRAM incentives pay up to 50% of the project costs to upgrade your system. For this option, an Energy Audit is required to identify energy savings opportunities through retrofits. Under the AUDIT FUNDING program, 50% of the audit cost, up to $25,000, is covered.


 

 
  • The PROCESS & SYSTEMS upgrade program is for larger, more complex operations, and offers a customized approach to system-wide energy efficient upgrades. A Preliminary Engineering Study (funding available up to $10,000) or a Detailed Engineering Study Program (funding available up to $50,000) is required to quantify potential energy savings and costs. When you implement changes, incentives are available for up to 70% of project costs.

Tune up industrial refrigeration for energy savings

If you’re using refrigeration on an industrial scale, it likely accounts for a significant portion of your electricity bill. So it’s an ideal place to look for energy improvements and savings opportunities.

A well-maintained refrigeration system can cut 50% or more of energy use and preserve the life of your equipment.

   

 

Are you being robbed by one of these five energy thieves?

Our experience shows that they are the places to check and adjust for energy improvements:

  • Use of improper refrigerant
  • Wrong-sized equipment operating at partial loads
  • Blocked condensers
  • lced-up evaporators
  • Removing more heat than necessary

Where to look in a systems check

Keeping your refrigeration system in top operating condition will help reduce energy consumption and increase the lifespan of your equipment.

Here are the top nine places to look:
