Oxford Energy Solutions
Ben Kungl, President of Oxford Energy Solutions demonstrates how his customer Your Farm Market grocery profits from the flexibility, scalability and sheer amount of information at their fingertips from the HMI platform available on their refrigeration system thanks to the Schneider Electric EcoStruxure system in place.
YOUR Farm Market
Normally a food market like this would have a refrigeration system that would be responsible for the majority of the hydro bill.
With no ovens or bakery, aside from lighting and other general uses YOUR Farm Market operates at under $900/month for hydro consumption.
The Oxford LPP™ operating through 42 degree summer days and -20 degree winter nights averages 5 kW of power, maximum of 18 kW during the highest peak. That is less than 60 amps peak power on 208/3 phase. This value includes all caseloads and evaporator/defrost loads, condenser fans, etc. to encapsulate the entire refrigeration platform. Due to the variable speed compressors on medium and low profiles, there is never a large inrush on the system.
Nature's Finest Produce
Retrofit of 200hp rack with hot gas defrost and R407C to New system with Electric defrost, High efficiency fan motors and Large horsepower R410A Copeland Scroll compressors with floating head and EXV’s resulting in much more reliable and effecient system. Operating at less that half the previous charge.
M&V results: Natures finest is getting about a 75% reduction in power during peak summer hours… about 45% reduction on average across the year.
