East Windsor, CT – Geissler’s Supermarket recently teamed up with Eversource on energy-saving improvements made to its East Windsor location. The upgrades will save the grocery store more than $63,000 in annual energy costs while delivering a more efficient and comfortable environment for staff and shoppers.

Geissler’s used the Energize Connecticut Small Business Energy Advantage program, which begins with a free energy audit from an Eversource-authorized contractor.

World Energy Efficiency Services completed the supermarket’s assessment and installed the equipment. Small Business Energy Advantage program highlights include:

  • Comprehensive energy-saving proposals that detail suggested measures to make businesses more energy efficient and projected savings
  • Financial incentives for efficient lighting, controls, and kitchen equipment like refrigerators, smart hoods, ovens, and freezers
  • No upfront costs for installed upgrades
  • Two-year warranty on contractors’ parts and labor.

“We’ve been welcoming the East Windsor community into our store for generations and were eager to revamp the location,” said Geissler’s CEO and President, Jim Nilsson. “By assessing our energy usage and identifying the appropriate upgrades, we’ve been able to refresh the store’s appearance and maintenance, as well as uphold our promise of quality and service to customers.”
