  Food distribution and cold storage companies operate
facilities which span multiple regions, often across North
America. Whether broadline or speciality, these companies
operate networks of unique facilities for their customers,
continuously moving and storing food products while
maintaining facilities which have closely monitored and
managed environments. Refrigerated and frozen storage
facilities have large energy footprints and driving energy
efficiency can deliver them a competitive operating cost

Groom Energy’s team has performed energy assessments
and implemented projects in over thirty-seven US States,
Canada, & Australia representing over 2.5 billion cubic feet
of storage space. For cold storage facilities, Groom engineers
have identified a two step opportunity for energy efficiency –
first applying LED lighting, which operate only when occupied
thereby reducing energy and cooling loads and second, adding
variable frequency drives to refrigeration systems, which
optimize the resulting lower cooling load requirement. This
two step process can reduce energy cost by 50% or more.
