Supermarket Energy Saving Device
An energy survey in the food retail sector in the USA in 2015 revealed that superettes and supermarkets spent between 36% and 60% of their electricity bills on refrigeration.
Nearer home a 2011 Cape Town University study established that refrigeration made up 45% of a typical supermarket’s energy bill.
Display refrigerators and freezers make up the majority of the latter spend with walk-in cold rooms next.
The smartest way to reduce supermarket refrigeration energy costs is to ‘cover up’ the cases post trading hours.
Polar Africa’s night blinds have demonstrated, that where no night blinds were previously installed or were not being used as a result of wear and tear, savings of up to 14% of a supermarket’s monthly electricity bill could be expected.
Moreover, 3 to 5 days additional shelf-life for both fresh fruit & veg as well as meat on display is possible.
