The newly installed LEDs significantly reduced monthly lighting energy consumption. They also emit dramatically less heat, which decreased air conditioning usage. Crucially for the client, the LED’s used have a high CRI rating, resulting in more vibrant retail displays and an overall better customer experience.
Through the retrofit, The North Face saved more than 116,000 kWh worth of energy in 2016 and is expected to do so every year for the next 10 years. That’s an annual savings of more than $15, 500 in energy and maintenance costs and a project lifetime saving of more than $150,000.
