Powering a supermarket is a 24/7 business, so identifying and managing unnecessary energy usage is vital to improving energy efficiency.
An hour and a half’s drive east of Albury, nestled between Mount Kosciuszko and Burrowa Pine Mountain National Park at the base of the Australian Alps Upper Murray River, lies the Victorian town of Corryong – The Man From Snowy River country.
At the 2016 census, the town was home to just over 1300 people. And one of the biggest employers in the town, providing work to more than 30 people, is the independently owned and operated IGA supermarket.
Supermarkets are heavy energy consumers. Regardless of whether they’re open for business, they need power 24 hours a day, seven days a week to keep the produce fresh and the store secure.
