Aloha Petroleum Achieves Energy Reduction
Aloha Petroleum, the convenience and gas retailer, achieved over 13% average reduction in energy use over the past twelve months, with one month reaching nearly 17% averaged savings across 30 locations throughout the state.
By becoming more efficient, Aloha Petroleum supports Hawai‘i’s sustainability goals of achieving 100% clean energy by 2045.
Aloha Petroleum worked with GridPoint, building energy management and optimization technology provider, and Hawai‘i Energy, the energy efficiency and conservation program for Hawai‘i, Honolulu and Maui counties.
The energy company participated in Hawai‘i Energy’s Smart Device rebate offer that was launched in 2021 to help Hawai‘i businesses deploy smart building technology that displays their energy usage in real-time, allowing them to better manage their facilities and reduce utility bills.
Hawai‘i Energy offers businesses a 50% rebate, up to $5,000 per site, on the cost to purchase and install GridPoint’s smart building controls at their locations - 26 Aloha Petroleum locations received the full Smart Device rebate, reducing the monthly subscription cost for GridPoint’s platform in half.
“Thanks to Hawai‘i Energy’s incentive, we were able to install GridPoint’s technology at all of our eligible locations throughout Hawai‘i,” said Butch Galdeira, regional director of retail and restaurant Operations at Aloha Petroleum in a statement. “Our initial savings were almost 13% and the reporting provided by GridPoint’s platform allows us to better understand how efficiently our HVAC units are operating and what we can do to continue to conserve energy and reduce costs without impacting the comfort of our customers and staff.”
