VaCom Technologies, La Verne, Calif., partnered with a large frozen food processor to win the $1.5 million California Energy Commission’s Food Production Investment Program (FPIP) grant, which will result in a projected 94% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).

VaCom developed a turnkey FPIP grant application on behalf of the large frozen food company. Through sizing and modeling multiple refrigeration system design options, VaCom identified the most cost-effective option that would result in the largest amount of GHG emission reduction.

The California Energy Commission awarded 100% of the requested funding to the customer toward completing the project. Upon completion of the project, the customer will have near-zero direct GHG emissions from its refrigeration system, as well as a more sustainable and reliable operation going forward.
