A 15,000 square-foot grocery store implemented a number of energy efficiency measures to save money and operate more sustainably. They installed programmable thermostats and infrared gas heaters to reduce space heating costs while maintaining comfort. Refrigerated display cases were upgraded with anti-sweat heaters controls and vertical night covers. Existing motors in display cases and walk-in coolers were replaced with more efficient ECM motors.
The project resulted in annual costs savings of more than $7,000 for a payback in just over a year and a half. The night covers also helped extend the shelf life of perishable goods.
LADWP offers many savings opportunities for businesses. For more information please visit LADWP.com or email SBS@ladwp.com.
