If you are the owner or operator of a supermarket chain, did you know that the installation of a photovoltaic power plant allows you to consume your own energy and thus reduce your energy expenses?
Photovoltaic, an cost-saving option for the retail industry
Retail Industry : Think about photovoltaic self-consumption
The energy expenses of the supermarket are regular and important. Energy must also meet the needs of the cooling units, lighting and heating stations, running continuously.
In addition, retail stores often have large, often unused roof and parking spaces that are suitable for the installation of photovoltaic power plants.
Photovoltaic not only concerns private individuals in residential homes, far from it. The installation of a photovoltaic power plant allows you to directly consume the energy produced by your power plant and is 25 to 50% cheaper than that produced by your current supplier.
Helexia’s photovoltaic power plants, have a lifespan of more than 30 years, guaranteeing you a long-term income covering 100% of your base investment.
Our partners Décathlon, Auchan, Leroy Merlin have already switched to photovoltaic self-consumption, why not you?
Generate income or savings by installing a photovoltaic roof without any investment and benefit from many advantages:
- Self-consumer or resell the energy produced on your site
- Reduce the ecological footprint of your buildings
- Benefit from a financial envelope to reduce your renovation costs (from 5.000 to 50.000€)
Energy efficiency, the ally of profitability in retail industry
As an owner, operator or financier in the retail sector, you know the impact of energy costs on your business. Indeed the price of energy is constantly increasing, while your energy expenses are very important.
Deploying an energy efficiency strategy within your retail brand is a short-term approach that will enable you to identify your energy saving potential, reduce your energy expenses and act on your cash flow.
The energy audit to identify your sources of energy savings
The energy audit is the first fundamental step in your energy efficiency strategy. It will allow you to identify the energy performance actions necessary to become more competitive in your market in the short, medium and long term.
Helexia and its auditors accompany you in your energy audit project and guarantee:
- The identification of your energy saving potential on your mono or multi-site perimeter.
- An energy efficiency optimization action plan
- The implementation of the energy efficiency actions present in the action plan
The Energy Performance Contract
An Energy Performance Contract (EPC) is a service contract created to improve the energy performance of a building or a complex of buildings. The EPC intervenes following an energy audit and allows the beneficiary to contractually guarantee his energy savings.
Examples of energy performance actions carried out by Helexia for its customers within the framework of an EPC:
- Cogeneration and Trigeneration
- Control of heating and air-conditioning stations
- Thermal insulation of your building
- Lighting optimization by relamping
- Sensibilization of your employees to adopt less energy-consuming behaviour
- Remote management and maintenance of your consumption for a better energy management.
- Management and optimization of your industrial refrigeration park
Industrial refrigeration systems are present in many sectors of activity, particularly in mass distribution. The fluids used in industrial refrigeration systems have a strong impact on the ozone layer and global warming. For this reason, European regulations are increasingly strict on the fluids to be used.
As an expert in industrial refrigeration management, Helexia helps you optimize and bring your refrigeration equipment into compliance with European regulations.
Manage your energy to ensure its best use.
Once your energy consumption stations have been optimized, control them in order to avoid unwanted energy drift.
The Helexia energy management system allows you to control your energy expenses in real time and thus reduce your consumption.
