On February 22, 75F, a predictive analytics cloud-based software platform for HVAC and lighting announced that its product was introduced to 34 Rockler Retail locations across the nation and upwards of 20 Border Foods locations.

According to the firm, Rockler Woodworking and Hardware worked with 75F to test its outside air optimization solution in their Maplewood, MN store to reduce energy usage. When the data showed a 32% energy savings, Rockler determined the sustainable clean tech building automation solution should be installed at its locations nationwide.

75F stressed that Rockler also included lighting controls in their retail rollout, saving additional money and further contributing to their bottom line.

Dave L., Rockler’s CFO remarked:

The 1 year payback is a no-brainer. Our Maplewood store study documenting 32% savings was confirmed by subsequent utility bill reductions.

Rockler’s Director of Store Planning, Glenn S. observed: “Our guest experience has improved and we’re saving energy, temperatures are uniform and comfortable.”

75F also noted that Border Foods, a franchisee of Taco Bell, saw a dramatic improvement in their restaurant’s temperature imbalances as soon as the 75F system was installed.

Border Foods store manager, Naomi H.commented: “Our kitchen employees noticed an immediate improvement in temperature and comfort. We have never felt this good,”

75F highlights the added benefits of its proprietary analytics dashboard in keeping guests comfortable while saving energy.
