Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly Projects Have Improved Customer Experience, Saved Energy

Cedarburg – A longtime Cedarburg business was honored Wednesday when Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly received an Energy Efficiency Excellence Award from Focus on Energy.

The grocery store completed two major energy-saving projects in 2017. The first was adding doors to cases in some refrigerated sections of the store, which conserves energy and increases customer comfort by reducing the amount of cold air coming out of the cases. 

In another move that saves energy and improves customer experience, Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly installed LED lights throughout the store last year.

“First and foremost, the financial viability of the payout was a no brainer at this time. Good stewardship of the environment is important, as well,” said business owner Ryan Olsen. “And from a comfort level, the climate control we have now, not having open refrigerated cases, we have much better climate control.”

The two 2017 upgrades will help Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly save more than $17,000 a year in reduced energy costs. The projects also eared the business incentives of more than $9,000 from Focus on Energy.

“Bottom line, Olsen’s has continued to demonstrate leadership related to energy efficiency,” said Dale Lythjohan, general manager of Cedarburg Light & Water. “We’re happy to participate with them and Focus on Energy in energy efficiency programs.’

Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly is one of 16 Wisconsin businesses, schools and institutions being honored with an Energy Efficiency Excellence Award from Focus on Energy.

A recent evaluation report found every $1 invested in Focus on Energy programs generated more than $5 of economic benefits for Wisconsin.
