Energy Efficiency Tips for Retail Stores
There are several low to no-cost measures that retail stores can implement to reduce energy expenditures:
- Turn lights, computers, cash registers and electronic displays off when not in use. Every 1000 kWh saved by turning things off equates to a $100 power bill reduction.
- Cleaning and maintenance. Proper maintenance of existing equipment addresses potential problems before they become energy wasters. Common equipment maintenance should include economizers, air filters, gaskets, condenser coils, door seals, cabinet panels and refrigeration settings.
- Temperature set-backs. Turn down temperature settings during unoccupied times and adjust temperatures to accommodate seasonal changes.
