Saks Stores Save 23% on Energy Consumption
Saks Fifth Avenue, which operates more than 110 retail stores in the US, partnered with Ecova to look at its energy use data and find ways to save energy, reports GreenBiz.
Ecova helped the retailer establish an energy-use baseline and then show how each element of an energy efficiency project would save. Each light was itemized, each variable frequency drive’s efficiency improvement was explained and each piece of equipment being retrofitted was documented, says GreenBiz.
Since 2011, participating stores have reduced their annual energy consumption by 23 percent, reports the magazine.
