SCHAEFER’S FOOD MART SEES A 19% DROP IN ELECTRICITY COSTS WITH WPS GLOBAL SYSTEM

This recent success story demonstrates an important and growing trend in grocery store management — better managing energy costs. More specifically, reducing electricity waste. IGA Schaefer‘s Food Mart in Crandon Wisconsin implemented an energy management solution that’s reduced their electricity costs by 19 percent over a one year period. That’s significant for this 28,000 square foot operation. Energy costs account for a significant portion of a grocery store’s operating budget — up to 15%. And, in a ~30,000 square foot store, refrigeration and lighting represent about 65% of total electricity use.

PHILCORR REPORTS A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN ELECTRICITY COSTS

PhilCorr, a 120,000 square-foot sheet-feeder based in Vineland, New Jersey, recently reported a $26,000 reduction in electricity costs accrued over a five month period. The substantial savings are a direct result of its custom WPS Global Inc. system installation in March 2015. This reduction in electricity consumption is one of PhilCorr’s energy management goals. The corrugated sheet feeder already generates nearly half of its total power via a 1.2-megawatt rooftop solar system made up of 3,584 fixed panels covering roughly 77,000 square feet. By significantly reducing its reliance on power from the Vineland Electric grid, PhilCorr is using the WPS Global system to further its sustainability initiatives. PhilCorr will consume fewer fossil fuels and reduce its emissions as a result. The reduction in total electricity consumption is making the sheet-feeder’s solar equipment have an even larger impact.  Over the five month period, the percentage of solar generated electricity, versus purchased, jumped to 52%. Without the reduction in electrical usage, PhilCorr’s same solar equipment would have only produced 47 percent of its electrical usage. As an added benefit, the WPS Global install protects PhilCorr’s equipment from electrical spikes and surges.  “Since the install, we’ve had no loss of drives,” says Daniel Santhouse, operations manager, PhilCorr. “And, we had no loss of equipment following a direct lightning strike on a nearby transformer.” The WPS Global system is designed to benefit high consumers of energy (facilities operating large equipment such as corrugators) with greater savings by reducing kilowatt consumption. The custom-designed plan WPS Global prepared for PhilCorr required no equipment or process changes and no investment in...

Electricity Prices Could Increase by 70 to 80%

Five days ago, an Obama administration official was reported to say that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent. News outlets cited Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, saying that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by “70 or 80 percent.” Now more than ever, manufacturers must pursue PROVEN methods to reduce energy consumption and costs.
