Success Story – Northland Premium 66

Northland Premium 66Kathy and Jeff Hansmann wanted to cut energy costs at their Northland Premium 66 gas stations and convenience stores in

Lino Lakes and Isanti. Working with Energy Smart, they decided to focus on lighting and refrigeration, which, as in most retail convenience stores, accounted for the lion’s share of their energy use.

They upgraded to energy-saving cooler doors with anti-sweat technology. They also installed more efficient exterior lights, wallpacks, canopy lights, interior troffers, and overhead and cooler LED lighting. “I’ve been very happy with the lights,” said Kathy, “and we’re looking forward to the energy savings.”
