Circle K

Circle K

FSG worked with Circle K to reduce its carbon footprint and maintenance costs, using LED lighting and FSG's energy management system.

The Challenge

Reducing energy consumption and energy expense is a priority for many businesses. Imagine, however, that your business not only needs energy for lights, climate control, and computers, but also for walk-in refrigerators, cookers, ice machines, and soda fountains. Now imagine that your business has approximately 8,000 locations, and each location needs to reduce its energy consumption by 3%. That was the challenge facing Circle K. Facility Solutions Group was the answer.

The Solution

To meet Circle K's needs, FSG Smart Buildings employed a customizable, expandable, adaptable energy management system. The FSG system fit seamlessly into existing stores, integrating with and monitoring legacy lighting and HVAC systems. The systems were also installed in new stores, and the FSG Smart Buildings team worked with architects and contractors to optimally place system components. Once operating, the EMS worked its magic. Circle K saw energy usage drop by 2.5 to 3% per store as monitoring personnel managed store temperatures and power to lights. On top of that, the system provided maintenance savings by spotting potential problems before they caused downtime. Circle K was able to take preventative measures and reduce the amount of maintenance truck dispatches. In the end, Circle K began to see operational savings that approached 10 to 15% per store. The FSG solution has been deployed in over 3,000 Circle K locations.
