FSG Provides Seamless Remote Control and Monitoring of Key Store Energy and Performance Variables for Circle K
ChallengeReducing energy consumption and energy expense is a priority for many businesses. But what if your business needs energy for lights, climate control, computers, walk-in refrigerators, reach-in coolers, ice machines, and soda fountains? Now, expand that complexity across 8,000 locations, and set a goal for reducing energy consumption at each location by 3%. That's the challenge Circle K was facing when it reached out to FSG's Smart Buildings Division for help with a company-wide rollout of an Energy Management System to help the convenience store chain more effectively manage its facility energy costs.
SolutionTo meet Circle K’s needs, FSG Smart Buildings employed our Chariot® platform. The cloud-based Chariot® platform fits seamlessly into existing stores, integrating with and monitoring legacy lighting and HVAC systems. WIth Chariot®, Circle K saw energy usage drop by 2.5 to 3 percent per store as FSG Smart Buildings’ Customer Support Center helped remotely maintain equipment and systems within specified parameters at the store level.
