Frozen Aisle: Lighting
BY SWITCHING TO LED LIGHTING
We continue to look for and invest in improved sustainable technologies, and we conduct energy audits regularly to ensure our stores operate at maximum efficiency.
In doing so, we found that the lighting in our stores could be more efficient. By testing the use of LED lighting in one of our newer stores, we discovered that it saved electricity by 35%. We are now rolling out LED lighting to existing stores and incorporating it into new store designs.
LED LIGHTING FIXTURES COMPANYWIDE
100,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) saved annually per store with the implementation of LED lighting and motion sensors on our refrigerated door cases —in 944 stores so far.
We have replaced all of our walk-in freezer lighting with LEDs. This results in a 50-80% reduction in energy usage over traditional incandescent lights.
