Supermarkets and grocery stores have steady and long energy consumption patterns. While consumers shop morning through evening every day, the systems within these stores operate with even longer hours. Refrigeration systems cool stored food or drink products in display, case and walk in coolers, constantly compensating against rooftop based HVAC for the general store area and outside air from storefront entrances and loading dock areas. Overhead, task, and case general lighting systems illuminate the front and back areas of the store while ovens, fryers, stoves and kettles contribute heat into refrigerated food preparation areas.
With these long operating hours, dynamic levels of heating, cooling and occupancy, Groom Energy’s team can always identify energy saving upgrades which save money, without impacting the customer experience.
