Sustainability at Trenton Cold Storage

At TCS, we are committed through innovation to regularly look for new ways to reduce our energy needs while remaining competitive in the market place. We have established a culture of recycling and re-using, understanding that new isnít always the responsible choice; and we are conscious of our water use and impact on the environment.

Upgrading Equipment and Facilities

  • LED Lighting
  • Conversion from DC to AC lift trucks
  • Automated and remote monitoring for refrigeration systems
  • Upgraded ceiling insulation

Renewable Energy

  • Roof top Solar Collectors
  • Multiple solar FIT and MicroFIT sites
  • Solar readings: Fraser Road Cooler Solar - Tri County Solar - PPL North Solar
  • Rooftop Solar actually protect and preserve the portion of the roof they cover, while shielding the structure from unwanted heat
    generation.
  • Annually: One 10kw Solar panel installation is estimated to generate 17000kwh and save 11.7 tons of CO2 -Solar panels work just fine in ambient light and will produce significant energy in the fog or on overcast days. In fact, solar panels are actually more efficient at cooler temperatures than hot ones.

Participating in Sustainable Energy Programs

  • Thermal Imaging Camera for building assessments
  • ENERNOC Demand Response Program
  • Paperless invoicing coming soon (Paper and paper products accounts for more than 1/3 of all Canadaís waste. Source: Environment Canada)

LED Lighting

LEDs use up to 80% less energy than traditional lighting. For example: The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that rapid adoption of LED Lighting alone in the US, could avoid the construction of 40 new power plants by 2027

LEDs last more than up to 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting with 50,000hrs+ of lifespan, fixtures emit light in a specific direction, are instant on and have no off-state power draw, provide a healthier and more natural usable light per watt, are safer as they emit very little heat per watt by comparison to traditional lighting and fixtures feature solid state technology which contain fewer parts, do not contain Mercury or Lead and are recyclable
