Energy Audits At Rural Grocery Stores

KSAL StaffMarch 24, 2014

The Kansas Corporation Commission is conducting energy audits at several rural grocery stores to determine how the stores can maximize efficiency.

Ryan Freed, director of the KCC’s energy division, says the audit information goes into recommendations about what energy improvements a store can make, and how long it would take them to pay off.

Freed says the stores getting the energy audits aren’t required to adopt any of the recommendations.

Mark Balocca, one of three owners of the Perry Lecompton Thriftway, says they applied to be one of the audited stores at the suggestion of their bank.

Balocca says the results will give them evidence to show their bank if investing in energy efficiency measures will pay off through lower utility bills.
