Energy Efficiency Upgrades at Co-op Food Stores
Energy efficiency improvements provide an excellent opportunity to reduce operating costs, while creating significant environmental benefits. This has been demonstrated in two recent food store renovation projects at Red River Co-op at Southdale and Saskatoon Co-op at the Centre.
What did they do?
Both locations underwent extensive renovations which included “built-in” energy efficiency improvements, mainly with refrigeration and lighting.
Both projects included major refrigeration upgrades using state of the art technology to optimize energy performance while maintaining correct temperatures for product quality and food safety. Examples include:
Lighting was upgraded at both locations from conventional fluorescent and metal halide lighting to new LED systems, which use 50% less electricity.
How much of an impact did these changes make?
