HUDSON, Wis. & SHELTON, Connecticut – The Refrigerated Solutions Group (RSG), an industry leader in refrigerated equipment and services, and Budderfly, one of the fastest growing complete energy management solution providers in the world. countries, today announced the results of energy efficiency pilot projects at two Subway restaurants using RSG’s Capsule Pak ECO™. Capsule Pak ECO™ is a new self-contained refrigeration system for indoor cold rooms and freezers. Pilot project results show that the Capsule Pak ECO™ system can save Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) an average of 50% on their walk-in refrigeration unit energy bills, and even more when It’s combined with Budderfly’s Energy Efficiency Solutions as a Service (EEaaS).
For the pilot, Budderfly replaced the old refrigeration systems, consisting of multiple motors and controls, with new Capsule Pak ECO™ systems at two Subway locations in Woodbridge and Southport, Connecticut. At the Woodbridge site, Budderfly installed Capsule Pak ECO™ systems in the cooler and freezer; at the Southport site, Budderfly replaced the cooler’s existing Capsule Pak™ with a new Capsule Pak ECO system.
Capsule Pak ECO™ systems are durable and comply with SNAP (Sustainable New Alternatives Policy) standards of the US Department of Energy, California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency. The patent-pending design uses efficient components and R290 as a natural refrigerant to provide environmentally friendly cooling solutions.
The Capsule Pak ECO™ is also simple to install and requires 20% less space than existing systems. Its small size and reduced weight provide more working space and easier handling. Additionally, all models are cord and plug connected and do not require floor drains, reducing installation and plumbing costs.
Capsule Pak ECO models will be available from RSG from July and all models will be available by September 2022.
“We are extremely pleased with the successful results of the pilot project in Connecticut,” said Dan Hinkle, RSG’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We are also very happy to work with a company like Budderfly, who are dedicated to providing the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions.”
“At Budderfly, we take great pride in being an early adopter of the latest and most innovative energy and cost saving technologies,” said Al Subbloie, Founder and CEO of Budderfly. “This relationship is very important to us and we are delighted with the outstanding results of the RSG Capsule Pak Eco™ pilot projects in Connecticut and look forward to installing many more with our customers.
RSG plans to work with Budderfly in a number of locations over the coming months to deliver cost savings and emission reduction benefits to QSRs and catering businesses across the country.
