Little Rock, AR, February 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Many of the largest energy users are businesses in the food service industry. Food stores and restaurants, along with convenience and liquor stores all rely on commercial refrigeration systems. Other facilities that rely on commercial refrigeration include schools and universities, nursing homes and hospitals, florists and jails. All of these facilities rely on systems that use out-dated, energy-consuming technologies. Not only are refrigeration systems huge energy wasters, but these systems operate 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year.
To combat the enormous and growing energy demands, Entergy Electric has more than doubled incentives available to businesses and institutions to make energy-efficiency upgrades. The total pool of incentives has been increased to OVER $9 million dollars. In addition, incentives will now cover up to 75% of the total project costs.
FridgeWize Arkansas installs energy-saving upgrades for commercial refrigeration systems. These upgrades routinely save business 80% on their electricity consumption. Because of the proven results of these technologies, FridgeWize Arkansas has been named a Participating Contractor in the Entergy Arkansas energy efficiency programs.
Refrigeration upgrades covered by the Entergy Arkansas energy efficiency programs include electronically-controlled motors in refrigeration systems, anti-sweat heater controls on glass door coolers and freezers, and night curtains on open coolers.
