Every penny is precious in a grocery store. Between balancing tiny profits with loss prevention, employee benefits, and marketing, your electric bill is a powerful tool to reduce waste across your store.
How? Your energy costs are directly tied to the life cycles of mechanical equipment. If you’re seeing flickering lights or leaky HVAC systems, that’s the perfect time to look at your energy consumption and where you can clean up energy waste.
"We were happy to work with Hawaii Energy during our lighting renovation. Not only did we reduce our energy use, but we also got money back in the form of a rebate.”
