  • Retail Stores

    Retail stores have diverse loads, long operating hours, and often high occupancy in the evenings. Planning for energy-efficient retail buildings starts in the design stages and should involve careful consideration for lighting, refrigeration, cooking, and space-conditioning systems and how they integrate together.
