Wattie Business for Cold Storage
Reduce Downtime. Track Usage.
Refrigerated warehouses (cold storage facilities) have one of the highest electric energy consumption rates in the commercial building sector. After personnel, energy is usually their second highest operating expense. Cold storage facilities consume an average of 25 kWh of electricity and 9,200 Btu of natural gas per square foot per year, with refrigeration accounting for more than 70 percent of overall electric usage.
Optimizing energy usage and monitoring refrigeration equipment in cold storage facilities becomes imperative to reducing expenses, as well as improving food safety and increasing operational efficiency. While energy costs typically account for 15% or more of a warehouse’s operating budget, it helps to understand (1) how you are being charged for energy and (2) what you can do to reduce those charges.
Wattie provides detailed picture of energy consumption into cold storage units. Moreover, it also makes sure that the compressors stay healthy so that the items don’t go bad due to any malfunctions or unoptimized operations and no energy is wasted due to faulty equipment.
