Upper Midwest Grocery Chain Strack & Van Til Cuts Store Electricity Use Over 25% in Less 12 Months

Minneapolis, MN (September 26, 2015): The 38-store grocery chain Strack & Van Til (SVT) has reduced its use of electricity by 26.6% in a two-store pilot program begun in 2014. Overall, the chain cut electricity use by 11.5% in stores open more than a year.

“It was critical for us to reduce one of our largest controllable expenses,” said Andy Raab, vice president real estate at SVT, LLC, which owns and operates Strack & Van Til. “We wanted to save money because we have an aggressive remodeling plan in the works.”

Grocers must also understand energy-efficient technologies such as variable-frequency drives (VFDs), electrically commutated (EC) motors, LED lighting, and door retrofitting, Singh said. Finally, they must understand how to communicate with their control systems through virtual private networks (or VPNs).

“Many retailers don’t have all these capabilities in house”, Singh said. “That’s why it makes sense for them to work with a one-stop shop where they can hire all the skills they need.”
