We’ve helped grocery stores and chains across the country realize millions of dollars in equivalent sales resulting in increased profitability and reduced operational shrinkage by installing remote energy management (REM).
We know you’re operating on thin profit margins and that refrigeration, lighting and ventilation consumes almost 90% of a store’s energy use. Our REM grocery solution increases profitability by saving energy and reduces operational headaches of false equipment alarms.
We quickly identify stores with the most savings potential using our REM service, C.A.R.E., focusing on implementing no-cost and low-cost savings strategies and suggest capital improvement projects as interest and budgets allow.
We provide REM services to grocery stores and chains across the country. Customers in New York State may be eligible for free commissioning services and technical support through our NYSERDA pilot REM program offering. It includes:
For eligible projects anywhere in New York State, customers only contribute to REM equipment installation and a small monthly energy monitoring subscription.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, known as NYSERDA, promotes energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. These efforts are key to developing a less polluting and more reliable and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers. Collectively, NYSERDA’s efforts aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, accelerate economic growth, and reduce customer energy bills.
kW Link™, our Remote Energy Management system and monthly monitoring service, provides a low-cost solution for in-store connectivity, monitoring of real-time system-level data and whole building energy consumption using a web-based portal and a securely networked monitoring system.
Verified Grocery Store Savings
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.

Our approach to a successful REM project involves seven simple steps.
Most projects (energy saving measures) we identify and implement are low-cost and no-cost changes at your stores. The biggest energy savings we’ve seen are from the following:
Alarm fatigue is a real concern.
When operators receive too many alarms, they are overwhelmed trying to sort important alarms from nuisance ones.
We use smart fault detection software to only alert staff of critical issues. Non-critical issues are shared through energy action reports when they significantly impact system performance.
