Tech solutions that bear fruit in winter
By signing up for the Demand Response (DR) Option, Convivio gets a credit on its bill in exchange for reducing its power demand during very cold weather. But how can it do so without affecting the integrity of its supermarket products? The key: taking advantage of simple, effective technological solutions.
- All three supermarkets are equipped with a generator that provides the electricity needed to run the store and preserve food quality.
- To facilitate participation in power demand reduction requests, generator starts and stops are automated at all three stores.
Through these two technologies, Convivio has obtained a credit of close to $70,000 with the DR Option and curtailed close to 1,100 kW during the 2021 winter period. Clearly a rewarding solution!
