Bashas' upgrades to LED lighting

DURHAM, N.C. — Bashas’, a family owned and operated supermarket retailer in the western United States, recently installed energy-efficient LED lighting from Cree, to better illuminate its Tempe, Ariz., location.

The newly renovated store features luminaires powered by Cree TrueWhite technology, delivering superior light quality that helps make products more attractive to customers, while enjoying the benefits of a quick payback and an anticipated energy savings of 47% over the store’s previous design.

“Shopping is a highly visual experience and it’s critical to showcase products in their most appetizing colors,” said Scott Murphy, construction manager for Bashas’. “When we decided to remodel the Tempe location, we initially chose fluorescent T8s and CFL downlights until we were introduced to Cree LED lighting. Cree luminaires not only deliver the best LED lighting in the industry but also provide significant energy and maintenance savings compared to outdated technologies. In the grocery store industry, it’s all about margins and Cree helped add green to our bottom line.”
