Retailers Light up the Holidays with LEDs

‘Tis the season for festive lighting, longer store hours and everyone’s favorite, costly energy bills. Retailers know this struggle all too well as the combination of extra lighting displays and energy needed to keep stores open longer often results in added energy costs building up between the months of November and January. The holidays can put a damper on energy expenses but it is possible for retail facility managers to cut costs while keeping stores ‘merry and bright’ with the help of solid-state LED lighting solutions. We’ve seen LEDs take over the holiday light sections with strands of colorful LED lights giving off a brighter glow, but where the real energy savings come from is a store’s overhead lighting, and LEDs offer the best solution for reducing energy costs.
