The Solution

Through a holistic assessment of the sign’s energy output and lighting structure, Relight identified a full LED retrofit as the ideal long-term solution. Relight proposed upgrading the current fluorescent lighting to new energy efficient LEDs, which would reduce energy consumption by 70%. The LEDs used have a 5-year warranty and 10-year lifespan, meaning minimal repair costs for at least the next 10 years.

The Results

Through the retrofit, Toys “R” Us saved 33, 533 kWh of energy in 2015. It saved over $3,400 in energy costs and over $6,000 in maintenance and repair costs, granting nearly $10,000 in energy savings for the year. Savings are expected for the next 10 years, so Toys “R” Us is expected to save nearly $100,000 during the retrofit project lifetime.  Relight also handled the rebate process on Toys “R” Us’ behalf, granting the company over $8,000 in rebates.

You can still spot the large Toys “R” Us sign from miles away in Metro Vancouver. Except now, it is running more efficiently than ever and will continue to bring smiles to children’s faces for many years to come.
