River Fresh IGA
Energy savings for IGA supermarket
Locally owned and managed since 1993, River Fresh IGA is a supermarket with a reputation for providing quality with old-fashioned service.
Owner and manager, Debbie O’Connor, wanted to both improve the appearance of the store, while simultaneously reducing power costs and CO2 emissions.
- Total energy consumed has been reduced by more than 80,000kWh per year, a saving of just over 63% on previous consumption.
- The project delivered a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 110 MT per year. That’s equal to taking 23 cars off the road every year, or planting 8,270 trees.
- In addition to energy cost savings, the project delivered an estimated maintenance cost saving of around $3,810 per year.
