Horticultural crops have been in high demand by consumers throughout history, and their availability year-round has become a necessity. The main cause affecting their post-harvest life is temperature as it greatly affects their respiration rate. Refrigerated warehouses must cool down and store these crops right after harvesting using different cooling methods to slow down the deteriorative processes. Each of these methods has different equipment and electricity requirements, and even though energy efficiencies have been calculated in previous studies, current refrigerated warehouses show significant differences in their energy consumption and little information is available on which practices are appropriate to decrease energy costs.[http://www.etcc-ca.com/database/dovvTiload/ETCC_Report_447.pdf].
