Wally Lindeman faced a challenge common to many energy managers in grocery retail. An outside observer might say that over the years he’d made his job look too easy. Lindeman’s energy-saving work had not been easy, but the results he and his small team delivered were consistent and reliable over many years. The projects generated fast payback with low risk, little complication, and highly predicable results. Although it has been getting harder each year to repeat that performance, Lindeman’s management expects him to keep producing similar gains.
