Monarch Beverage Company is Indiana’s largest distributor of beer and wine with 600 employees serving over 1,100 customers across the state. Having launched a highly successful sustainability initiative in the area of natural gas, the company’s management wanted to know if they could implement power correction and electrical energy conservation measures that would further reduce cost in what was already one of the most advanced operational environments in the industry.
Monarch Beverage Company is well known for its advanced operational systems and commitment to Green Initiatives such as recycling and energy conservation. Serving as a model for the beverage industry, the Company’s Indianapolis management team is converting 85% of their fleet to CNG and building an on-site natural gas fueling station.
In the area of electric energy conservation, Monarch turned to EESI Global, Ltd., a leader in the area of electrical energy conservation technology. Management wanted to know if they could improve their power quality and reduce electrical energy consumption considering the already advanced nature of their operational system and resistive loads in excess of 16%. EESI Global’s engineering assessment team determined that they could further reduce cost by addressing electrical loads in the areas of lighting, refrigeration, air conditioning, and equipment which made up 83% of the facility’s overall electrical load.
EESI originally projected additional savings of 10.2% with a payback period of less than 30 months. While EESI exceeded the projected savings in the first three months following installation, after 8 months savings had increased to 15.14%. This exceeded the initial projection by 48%, greatly reducing Monarch’s payback period and far exceeding the initial projection of savings.
