Singh360, working with ComEd in the Chicagoland Area, Produce Stellar Results

Medina, MN (February 28, 2019): Singh360 recently completed a Retro-Commissioning project for a large nation-wide grocer in the Chicagoland area.  As an approved provider of the ComEd RCx Building Tune-Up program, Singh360 was able to utilize ComEd’s utility incentives to keep the investment low.

Our two highly trained engineers along with a refrigeration contractor spent a week at the store, delivering great energy saving results. The 42,600 sq.ft. grocery store that benefited from this, is occupied daily from 6AM to 11PM, 7 days/week and has been open for several years.

Singh360 Energy software and services range from building-envelope assessments to complete design of mechanical and electrical systems (including HVAC, lighting and refrigeration systems) for new and existing buildings using mobile and cloud app from kWh360 Inc.

Grocery Store Remodeling Project at Strack & Van Til Cuts Electricity Bill 35%

Medina, MN (September 26, 2015): Even for engineers with long experience in remodeling supermarkets, the size and speed of the energy savings came as a surprise.

Even for engineers with long experience in remodeling supermarkets, the size and speed of the energy savings came as a surprise.

Just two months after they finished a big project, energy use in one store dropped by 35%.

No less surprised was the supermarket’s electric utility provider. An account executive there wrote the retailer’s energy manager to suggest that an electricity meter may not be working properly. These innovations help organizations set priorities for efficiency projects based on sustainability goals, speed of payback, and the measured return on investment. Contact Singh360 to see if these innovations fit with your facility and energy management strategy going forward.

Singh360 Partners with Brazilian Energy Engineering Firm – Evolutiva

Medina, MN (August 15, 2016): Singh360, a Minnesota-based provider of technologies and services to reduce energy consumption, has announced a commercial partnership with Evolutiva Engenharia e Consultoria, an engineering firm based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Evolutiva plans to introduce Singh360’s systematic energy efficiency processes and technologies. We will also remarket the 360-Cloud software.”

“We’re impressed by the savings North American users of the 360-Cloud software have achieved for their multi-site operations,” Flavio said. “We are especially impressed by how easy the software is to learn and use.”

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.”

RDM & Singh360 Bring Massive Energy Savings to Grocery Store Chain Lunds & Byerly’s

Minneapolis, MN (April 5, 2015): Minnesota based grocery chain Lund Food Holdings, Inc. (LFHI) has seen an incredible reduction in energy usage through its partnership with Singh360 and Resource Data Management.

Various energy saving technologies are being used (RDM floating suction and head pressure control, door heater control, night set-point set-backs, LEDs, condenser and HVAC Blower Fan VFDs, hybrid condensers, door retrofits, retro-commissioning, etc.) and, in most cases, are knitted together using RDM’s advanced control capabilities, resulting in millions of dollars in electricity savings.

Singh360 are continually finding new ways to reduce energy spend, such as automating the kitchen hood exhaust fans based on usage. By consistently providing cutting edge technology and top notch customer service, RDM and Singh360 are forging a new standard in the facilities management marketplace.

Use of Variable Frequency Drives Cuts on HVAC Blower Cuts Energy Use by 45%

Maple Grove, MN (June 4, 2013): < /strong> Use of variable-frequency drives (or VFDs) enabled Byerly’s grocery stores to cut energy use by almost half in blower-fan motors at five locations.

“VFDs make the operation of refrigeration systems smoother. If you implement them with the proper control strategy, they can reduce power consumption by 20% to 30% in those units,” Abtar Singh said. More than 95% of all installations of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (or HVAC) systems in the United States use single-speed motors rather VFDs.

VFDs save energy by running electric motors at variable speeds. They control the speed of the motor by changing the frequency or voltage of the alternating current (or AC) on which it runs. “When you reduce the speed of a fan motor by 20%, air flow decreases by 20%,” Singh said. “But energy use drops by 50%.”

Hybrid Refrigeration Condensers Enable 25% Energy Efficiency Improvement for Grocery Stores

Maple Grove, MN (March 4, 2013) – Supermarket operators can achieve 25% gains in energy efficiency by using hybrid condensers for their in-store refrigeration systems.

Supermarket operators can achieve 25% gains in energy efficiency by using hybrid condensers for their in-store refrigeration systems. The relatively new hybrid systems present a cost-effective alternative to older air-cooled or water-cooled technologies, according to Abtar Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Singh360, a firm that provides energy-related consulting services to grocery supermarkets.

Singh announced that his company has agreed to represent the TrilliumSeriesTM hybrid technology from Baltimore Air Coil (or BAC).
