Quickie Convenience Stores recognized for cutting-edge conservation program

Quickie Convenience Stores' commitment to energy conservation introduced a new energy-efficient refrigeration system to the Ottawa area. The piloted refrigeration system reduced the energy consumption of a location’s walk-in box by 80%. The new technology, Freeaire Refrigeration, takes advantage of the outside air during the winter months. It monitors the indoor and outdoor temperatures and brings in filtered, cool air. Quickie has invested in many other energy saving solutions including external LED lighting under its gas canopies reducing its electricity costs by 50%. Hydro Ottawa salutes Quickie for its green innovations in the convenience store industry.
