$60m Gas Station Retrofit Project Launched by Blue Earth

Blue Earth Inc., Gexpro and eCORE Technology have launched a project aimed at improving the energy efficiency of more than 2,000 independently owned gas station and convenience stores.

The project will include energy management systems, energy-efficient lighting and high-efficiency motors for refrigeration.

The first phase of the program is projected to cost $60 million and focuses on gas stations with an average energy cost of $30,000. It is expected to be completed within two years.

Castrovilla Inc. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blue Earth will coordinate and install the energy efficiency measures; Gexpro will supply equipment; eCORE Technology will provide program introduction, marketing and sales support and Blue Earth will provide the project financing.

In August, Efficient Energy America announced that its retrofit HVAC control system, aimed at reducing energy costs and consumption, would now be available to the convenience store market.

The company says that, after installation, customers can save as much as $800 each month on electricity costs, per location.

  1. HELP. I’m looking for information from the 1970’s when independently owned gas stations were forced to retrofit their storage systems at a cost that forced many of these stations to close. I’m curious on why our Government allows monopolies and acquisitions and when leverage buyouts fail, congress passes laws that put the competition out of business. What is the TRUTH behind BP and Arco? Please reply accordingly. Thank you, Kevin Luxon

  2. I just performed upgrades on 10 of my stores with a company called RenewAge. The replaced my interior and exterior lights, put LEDs in the canopies, LEDs in the cooler doors and put ECM motors and controllers in my walk-in cooler. I’m seeing $1,500 a month in savings, roughly 40% from what I used to pay and the project will have returned its investment in less than 2 years. They did a great job.
