Wisconsin Walmart Neighborhood Market Uses Cree LEDs


Walmart has selected energy-efficient LED lighting to illuminate its Neighborhood Market store in Mt. Pleasant, Wis.
Interior lighting products, including more than 400 LED linear luminaires, will fully illuminate the Neighborhood Market – from the sales floor and pharmacy to restrooms, vestibules and backroom areas. LED lighting also will be installed in the parking lot and exterior areas of the store.
Walmart estimates the luminaires, designed for low maintenance and long life, will save the company about 30 percent in energy costs compared to interior fluorescent lighting.
Walmart’s deployment of LED lighting will help the company achieve its sustainability goal to be supplied 100 percent by renewable energy. According to Walmart, the retailer used enough renewable energy last year to power 78,000 homes.
In December 2012, Walmart Canada announced it had retrofitted all of the overhead sales floor lighting at its Brampton North store in Brampton, Ontario, from conventional fluorescent lighting to LED 4-foot retrofit lamps, resulting in savings of up to $26,000 per year.
