Viking Cold Solutions Announces the Launch of Xcel Energy’s Custom Thermal Storage Incentive Program

HOUSTON, Sept. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Viking Cold Solutions, the leading thermal energy storage technology provider for the low-temperature cold storage and frozen food industries, announces the inclusion of its award-winning energy storage technology in Xcel Energy’s new Custom Thermal Storage Incentive Program, part of their Custom Efficiency programs in Colorado and Minnesota.

As an industry leader in delivering clean energy solutions, Xcel Energy is currently offering significant funding for energy-saving technology upgrades, such as Viking Cold’s Thermal Energy Storage (TES) systems, which safely reduce demand and add temperature resiliency and efficiency to low-temperature facilities with large energy needs.

The majority of the TES system and installation costs will be funded by Xcel Energy’s Custom Thermal Storage Incentive Program and the remainder can be paid for out of the energy savings. By working with the utility to deploy innovative technology that addresses grid challenges and reduces emissions, owners of cold storage and frozen food facilities can save up to 25% or more on their monthly energy costs.

“Xcel Energy’s support of Viking Cold technology is further confirmation that TES creates value for both the utility as well as frozen food and cold storage customers. The utilities are incentivizing customers to upgrade their facilities with the latest efficiency and sustainability technology, such as TES, to provide safe, long-duration demand reduction. This helps customers in Colorado and Minnesota achieve their financial and sustainability goals,” said Collin Coker, Viking Cold’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Viking Cold works directly with Xcel Energy representatives to assist customers through the program application process to maximize incentives, install the TES technology, and optimize the facility’s operation and energy use.
