Four Seasons Produce: Ephrata, PA
The cold storage facility was the first warehouse to earn the ENERGY STAR and reduced its annual energy use by 25% over four years. Energy-efficient lighting and HVAC controls contribute to savings while participation in a demand response program reduces peak loads. The company recycles 88% of its waste and sends waste produce to a local farm where it is used as feedstock. Changes to the cooling tower water treatment method have reduced water use significantly.
