BOSTON — EnerNOC Inc. announced that Weis Markets, a Mid-Atlantic food retailer, has expanded deployment of EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software across its entire chain of 163 supermarkets located in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
“Controlling energy use and costs has a material impact on the success of our company, which makes energy management a major operational focus,” said R. Kevin Small, vice president of store development at Weis Markets. “We were looking for an enterprise-wide solution that identifies operational leaders and opportunities, which helps us accurately anticipate costs and create and track against budgets. That’s what EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software does for us.”
To rein in costs, Weis Markets initially deployed EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software at 20 of its more energy intensive stores in 2012. By using EnerNOC’s software analytics, Weis Markets’ team quickly identified significant energy savings opportunities that required little or no capital investment. In the 40-store pilot phase of the partnership, Weis Markets identified over $160,000 in savings opportunities. Encouraged by this early success, Weis Markets expanded its deployment, culminating in portfolio-wide use of the software.
“Energy expense management is essential in hyper-competitive industries like the grocery business, but it can’t be too time-intensive or complex for staff to understand. We’ve simplified energy expense management by centralizing disparate information into one easy-to-use platform and connecting energy usage to costs,” said Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “Companies like Weis Markets have seen the results EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software delivers, and by expanding it across a portfolio, these leading organizations are positioned to achieve greater operational efficiency.”
