Department of Energy Recognizes Macy’s for Energy Efficiency

POSTED UNDER Partnerships & Awards

Thanks to vigilant associates in functions throughout our company, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s locations nationwide are making strides in reducing energy use. Leading the way is Macy’s Ingram Park Mall store in San Antonio which was honored last month by the U.S. Department of Energy for reducing its energy usage over the last two years by 43 percent!

Dr. Kathleen Hogan, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, toured the store on April 15 to learn about the store’s energy efficiency. Leading the tour were Bart Salmon, director of regional facilities, Rick Sandoval, VP/store manager, Brad Little, manager of district facilities and Mike Batha, chief technician. Dr. Hogan’s personal visit recognized Macy’s leadership in the DOE Better Buildings Challenge, a national initiative to honor energy efficiency. Congratulations to the team!

On the DOE tour, Salmon highlighted key store improvements that produced Ingram Park’s outstanding results:

  • Energy efficient LED lighting
  • A new super-efficient chiller
  • A high efficiency cool white roof

In Ingram Park and all Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores, real-time energy usage is viewable through Macy's online energy management system. Usage spikes and odd activity are quickly analyzed for improvement, and ideas for energy efficiency are shared for others’ learning.

Inspired to make your mark in your own location? Find ideas here, or speak with your facility’s team. With your help, we’ll continue to make every day Earth Day!

“Implementing energy-efficient practices at Macy’s benefited the company in more than just savings on its energy bill. Macy’s found that their customers are big fans of some of the new technologies – especially the LED-lit store because (it) provides a better and brighter color than the former spotlights.”
