Your Local Supermarkets in N.J. Care About the Environment

Nicholas Markets Foodtown is a Green Business

Nowadays, many businesses are trying to go green and Nicholas Markets Foodtown felt it was important to reduce the carbon footprint.

Here are just a few of the eco-friendly practices deployed at all of our local grocery stores:

  • Performing energy audits each year to measure and reduce energy at our N.J. supermarkets.
  • Replacing all lighting with energy efficient bulbs in all of our markets. We have been switching over since 2008.
  • Installing lighting controls for bathrooms, parking lots, and all multi-use office spaces.
  • Purchasing energy-saving equipment including ovens, refrigerators, and refrigerated cases. Some equipment at our local grocery stores is replaced every 4 years.
  • Installing energy-efficient windows during our remodel in 2008.
  • Deploying a reusable shopping bag program that pays consumers to use the bags.
  • Sourcing more than 70% of seafood from wild caught sources. Farm raised fish is 90% green.
  • Carrying over 800 organic, biodegradable, and fair trade products at our N.J. supermarkets.
  • Consistently cleaning parking lots and landscaped areas.
  • Sharing information about these initiatives so other businesses will be inspired to do the same!
  • Natural gas generator added in our North Haledon location and coming soon to all locations. 

Nicholas Markets to Make Use of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Facility

The North Haledon location features a 350 kW natural gas engine generator that is expected to produce 2,673,072 kWh and 16,932 MMBtu of utilized waste heat annually. Average annual costs savings are projected to total $243,000.

Nicholas Markets plans to use the majority of the electricity and all waste heat produced from the CHP unit for process cooling, space heating and water heating. The overall system efficiency is estimated at 83 percent. In the event of a power outage, the CHP unit is designed to run independently from the grid and act as a standalone power source by using black start and islanding capabilities.
