Grocery chain reduces carbon footprint, cuts energy costs by 30%


 MANCHESTER, CT – February 2019JouleSmart Solutions is working with Highland Park Market to transform its Grocery stores into intelligent buildings.   JouleSmart has modernized Highland Park Market’s Susfield and Glastonbury locations with its Integrated Intelligence Gateway (IIG) a system that provides remote facility oversight and active, real-time, optimization of comfort, indoor air quality, and energy usage.

Highland Park Market is a family-owned and operated chain of retail grocery stores serving communities in Central Connecticut.  Highland Park Market’s focus is on creating a pleasant shopping experience for its customers and is dedicated to the principles of providing outstanding service and quality products.  The grocery store chain partnered with JouleSmart to turn its three locations into intelligent buildings with modernized and upgraded lighting to highlight displays and create inviting environments.

JouleSmart’s comprehensive assessment included: HVAC, lighting, refrigeration and kitchen ventilation equipment, maintenance strategies and the building’s potential to participate in revenue-producing Smart Grid programs.  JouleSmart installed its Integrated Intelligence Gateway, which they custom configured to the specific needs of the building.   The IIG is continuously connected to JouleSmart’s proprietary, cloud-based system, providing real-time ActiveOversight™.

The result is a building that outperforms its peers, providing the building owner with substantial improvements in operating performance and significant reductions in energy use.   JouleSmart’s solution has reduced some of the largest operating costs by over 30%, providing a significant boost to their bottom line.  The new system also provides an enhanced shopping experience for Highland Park Market’s customers and supports its focus on going green.
