*Energy Consumption Notes: These numbers are approximations. There are many factors which may change the above calculations, including compressor load percentage, compressor-control type, age of unit, ambient conditions, maintenance of unit, etc. CO2 Emissions

*Sales Increase Equivalent: the total amount of incremental sales required, at a 8% net profit, to equal the energy cost per year reduction opportunity.
