Energy

Food Lion is celebrating its 1000th Energy Star rated store.

Food Lion LLC continues to hold energy management as an operating cornerstone. 83.5 billion BTUs were successfully cut from our energy program in 2010 Those savings are the equivalent of reducing carbon emissions by 54.3 million pounds, planting 7,443 acres of trees, powering 2,447 American homes for one year or taking 5,433 cars off the road.

Since 2000, Food Lion LLC has reduced energy consumption by more than 2.69 trillion BTUs, and has trimmed energy use by more than 25 percent.

Even during the difficult economic times of 2010, Food Lion LLC remained committed to energy conservation, earning 90 percent of the EnergyStar labels awarded to grocers through Oct. 20, 2010.

Advanced refrigeration technologies: Another side of our sustainable business practices and GreenChill efforts is our advanced refrigeration technologies, which reduce global warming potential. The advanced technology uses a “cascading” CO2 system which uses a single system and just one condensing unit to refrigerate and freeze food. Using this technology has allowed two of our stores to earn “Gold GreenChill” certification from the EPA.

LED (light-emitting diode) fixture retrofit: We are investing in LED lighting to help lower our energy use and carbon footprint.

Duke Energy solar panel partnership: Food Lion’s Salisbury distribution center was selected as one of four sites where Duke Energy installed rooftop solar panels as part of Duke’s first phase of solar power generation in North Carolina. In spring 2010, Duke installed 5,616 solar panels, which generate 1.3 megawatts of electricity.

Demand Control Technology: Food Lion uses sophisticated technology to control its energy use at all of its stores.

2010 U.S. EPA Montreal Protocol Award: Food Lion LLC was one of just four corporations awarded the Montreal Protocol Award for outstanding contributions toward protecting the ozone layer, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving public awareness about environmental issues. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/food-lion-receives-2010-montreal-protocol-award-104579984.html
