Gain the Competitive Edge. Discover Your Industry Advantage with LED Lighting from KWReduction


In today’s economy,you need to take advantage of every opportunity to stay ahead of your competition. LED lighting can give you that competitive edge.  An LED retrofit can save you 50% to 80% of energy costs no matter what industry you are in. LED beats traditional lighting sources by being energy efficient, long lasting, durable, and environmentally friendly. It also offers unique advantages, such as directional illumination, less heat waste in cooled spaces, and no flickering or buzzing. When used in conjunction with lighting controls such as an occupancy sensor or dimmer, savings can be increased further.

The energy saving advantages of LED vary by industry, usage and application. Here are a few examples from

Auto Dealers
“Automobile dealerships are certainly an energy-intensive industry, with facilities consuming about 110 kBTU per square foot, compared to prime office space at 93 kBTU. That amount can add up to thousands of dollars in water and energy costs for the typical dealership per year. All dealerships have the potential to reduce energy costs by at least 20 percent, with more advanced energy efficiency and energy management approaches saving even more….For most businesses, lighting accounts for 18 to 55 percent of electricity consumption. With dealerships falling on the high end of this scale, lighting efficiency should be a new construction priority and a high-return upgrade for existing facilities.”

Grocery Stores
“Given that profit margins of supermarkets are so thin, on the order of 1 percent, EPA estimates that $1 in energy savings is equivalent to $59 in increased salesthat’s a real competitive advantage!”

“Energy efficiency improvements may be essential to a supermarket’s continued success and the quality of the customers’ shopping experience. Too much cold air escaping from refrigerated displays, for example, may decrease comfort for customers and employees alike, requiring simultaneous space heating and a significant overuse of energy.”

“Lighting represents about 26 percent of electricity consumption in a typical school, not including its impact on cooling loads. Lighting retrofits can save as much as 30 to 50 percent of lighting energy, plus 10 to 20 percent of cooling energy

Further, studies have found that a better physical environment that includes superior energy performance contributes to increased productivity and learning. “
