Extra Supermarket Grocery Case Study


This case study reveals the savings results for a supermarket in Fiji known as Extra. Extra Supermarket’s mission is to provide their customers with a world-class shopping experience, the “Extra Experience”. That is why Intelli-Hood® was the ideal solution for their store. The study shows how an Intelli-Hood® installation was able to reduce their yearly utility costs with less than a year payback period.


This case study portrays the utility costs savings Intelli-Hood helped Extra achieve in their new venue. Figure A depicts the company’s projected annual energy costs as compared to their actual energy savings. With the installation of Intelli-Hood®, Extra cut their utility costs practically in half. They experienced a $14,713 savings by utilizing Intelli-Hood in their new facility.

The chart below, Figure B, shows the average fan speed for the exhaust fans over the course of several days. The dips in the chart represent times when the fans are not running, and the spikes represent when the fans are operating. The spikes in the fan’s speed vary slightly which means the fans are running more efficiently. The average fan speed for these exhausts was 66%.
