Field Fresh Foods In-Depth Case Study
The Field Fresh Foods facility covers an area of ~3.5 acres containing about 70,550 square foot (SF) of refrigerated warehouse and approximately 10,000 SF of office/mechanical and maintenance area. The refrigerated warehouse areas are broken up into many smaller areas, each cooled by one or two small compressor/condenser units and multiple evaporator units. The evaporator fans vary in size from ¼ HP to ¾ HP each and the quantity of fans per evaporator unit varies from 2 to 5. These fans run continuously, even when the condenser unit is satisfied and shuts down.
Carlisle Energy worked with Edison to prepare a savings analysis and found that by retrofitting (25) evaporator coils at their facility with Carlisle Controllers and (98) EC Motors ranging from ¼ HP to ¾ HP. Field Fresh Foods will save approximately $496,443.00 in the next five years. Southern California Edison’s incentive of $37,194.00 for our Carlisle Controllers and EC Motors allowed this project to have an ROI of less than 14 months.
