The article reports that after using the same energy system for almost 20 years, XtraMart convenient stores, operating more than 400 stores,190 company operated, needed a change. The company turned to the National Resource Management (NRM) for the solution. The company tested NRM's Remote Site Manager system for a year, and after seeing "great results," decided to implement more. As part of the company's Control system, when the outside temperature falls three or four degrees below the set point, the Economizer becomes the primary cooling source, and the refrigeration system becomes the secondary source.
