How Cree LED Lighting Helped Petro Store Save 68 percent on Lifetime Energy

It’s no longer a question of if, but when businesses will transition to LED. Even the 2015 Super Bowl was lit with LED technology for the first time. I thought you may be interested in a new case study on how Cree LED lighting is helping one business improve its operations and economics across the board.

Energy represents 30 percent of a typical gas station’s costs and is a property’s single largest operating expense. Not to mention that high-quality illumination can help distinguish one facility from its competition. By upgrading their light fixtures to Cree LED luminaires, 4 Sons Food Stores, Inc. was able to cut each of its 21 store’s energy bill by about a third and save thousands on maintenance costs. Additionally, each location was able to secure between $8,000 to $16,000 in utility rebates thanks to Cree’s high quality solutions and one-for-one replacement to maintain compliance.


The full case study is attached along with photos of the installation in case you are interested in a story on the news. I am also happy to coordinate an interview with Cree on how organizations – from gas stations to hospitals – are approaching a zero-energy business and improving their environments with LED lighting.
