How a faulty freezer door led to a complete energy overhaul

Director of Operations at Scenic Fruit, Jake Mabe, set out to replace a freezer door he knew was costing the company a lot of energy. This got Jake thinking, “How else can we save energy here?”

With incentives from Energy Trust, Scenic Fruit has replaced three freezer doors, upgraded their lighting and integrated energy saving software at their 30,000 square foot warehouse. These upgrades are expected to save the local business an estimated $50,000 a year!

Find savings at your place

Brighten up your space: LED lighting for business

Lighting consumes about 30 percent of the total energy used in most commercial buildings. So naturally, it’s a good place to start when considering ways to make your business more energy efficient.

A little or a lot, we’ve got you powered.
