JackRabbit Saves $25K Through Energy Upgrades to 29 Stores
JackRabbit cut energy costs by $25,000 in 2020 through the implementation of energy efficiency initiatives across 29 store locations.
The sporting goods retailer partnered with Budderfly on the project for its Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service Program to decrease operating costs and streamline its process for maintaining LED light fixtures and HVAC equipment. Budderfly completed energy enhancements, such as LED lighting, smart thermostats and efficient HVAC units, to 29 JackRabbit locations in the U.S. and should expand to an additional 50 locations by the end of the year
The project allowed JackRabbit stores to avoid 583,740 kWh of electricity in 2020 and $400,000 in capital investments.
“We saw the proof-of-concept and work Budderfly had completed with our Olympia Sports store locations, and it became apparent that having them replicate this for JackRabbit would give us one less management headache to deal with,” Timothy Styler, vice president of distribution, procurement & operational solutions at JackRabbit, said in a statement. “With JackRabbit backed by private-equity firm CriticalPoint Capital, Budderfly presented them with a great alternative to spending their investment money on up-front lighting and HVAC costs and instead, showed them how to save money through energy-saving programs.”
