Start Saving Today!
We’ve customized this list to help your grocery store save money with Efficiency Vermont rebates today and on energy costs for years to come.
Refrigeration is the biggest energy user in a grocery store. It can account for half of all energy costs. Save money by retrofitting existing reach-in and walk-in coolers with efficient fan motors, door heat controls and more. Installing new equipment and optimizing existing equipment are also good options for savings and system reliability.
Today’s efficient lighting can drastically reduce energy use, improve light quality and product appeal, and create a more comfortable environment for your customers. Options are available for overhead lighting, display lighting, food cases, and parking lots. Occupancy sensors save money by turning off lighting in occasionally used spaces like rest rooms, break rooms, storage areas.
Use less energy and replace your lights less frequently by using quality LEDs in track lighting, recessed cans, product display, portable task/desk lights, under cabinet lights and outdoor fixtures. LEDs also create less heat output, which reduces the need for air-conditioning.
Energy-efficient and optimized HVAC equipment and controls can reap significant long-term cost savings, increase equipment reliability, and create a more comfortable store.
Commercial kitchens and delis use a lot of energy for food preparation, dishwashing, and kitchen ventilation. An initial investment in energy-saving ENERGY STAR® qualified commercial equipment will typically be returned in savings quickly.
Quality insulation and air sealing enable you to maintain comfortable temperatures, save on heating and cooling costs, and protect your building from destructive moisture and molds.
For large stores, commissioning can ensure that your building’s heating, cooling, and other systems work efficiently together to save energy and reduce operating costs. Additional benefits include improved indoor air quality, occupant comfort, and productivity.
Efficiency Vermont offers financial and technical assistance to help businesses increase the comfort of building occupants and optimize the efficiency of both large and small new construction and major renovation projects.
