Recently for one chain of grocery stores, we unlocked “lost” profit creating the equivalent outcome of increasing same store sales by over $900,000!
Our Grocery Monitoring Based Commissioning (GMBCx) Program assists grocery store owners by identifying excess energy usage in lighting, heating & air conditioning and refrigeration systems and implementing cost effective solutions resulting in energy savings (lost profit) of 5% to 10% of energy expenses.
Our GBMCx Program resulted in over 231,000 kWh savings with an average implementation cost of $10,000 per store in five stores for one of our grocery sector customers. Additional results included:
months - simple payback
cost savings per store
equivalent sales increase per store
Left unchecked, energy use tends to “creep” up and identifying and resolving the culprits takes time can be a hassle.
We make it easy for grocery stores to manage energy use and avoid energy creep. We assign an engineering specialist to track energy use in our online, proprietary energy project tracking and savings analysis database, kW Tracker.
kW Engineering has been instrumental in our efforts to be more energy efficiency minded. I would not proceed with any project without first consulting them.
