The Challenge

A business store in Jacksonville, FL operates in a 5,000 sq. ft. building. It is a consignment shop that buys and sells gently used children’s clothing, toys, furniture and more! When they were faced with having their 3 HVAC/R units either needing maintenance or replacement, they turned to Demandside Energy Solutions Inc and found the Arctic Gator™ to be their most cost effective solution.

The Solution

The Arctic Gator Team installed Arctic Gator™ which dropped their 20-ton load to 10-tons. The team was also able to drop the heat strip load down.

The Result

Thanks to the Arctic Gator Team, the business store is now able to efficiently cool and heat their building to comfortable temperatures for employees and customers year-round while also seeing a decrease in their energy consumption which reflect on their monthly electric bill.


  • The average kwh dropped from 28 to 19 resulting in a 28% drop
