LED upgrade cuts lighting costs for two retail centers

BY Marianne Wilson

Two major shopping centers are saving money and providing an enhanced experience for shoppers since the centers upgraded their outdoor parking lot fixtures to LED technology.

InvenTrust’s Northcross Commons, Huntersville, North Carolina, and Phillips Edison & Company’s Greentree Centre, Racine, Wisconsin, replaced their existing fixtures with outdoor area lighting (OSQ-HO) from Cree. With the new lighting, the centers were able to reduce the number of fixtures needed by 50% and will receive over 87% in energy and maintenance savings each year.

In addition, the lighting delivers a uniform lighting experience for shoppers that is safe, comforting, and aesthetically pleasing.

Cree’s technology is also fully customizable and provides a tailored experience that optimizes lighting controls. The lighting offers IoT connectivity and enables advanced capabilities such as scheduled runtime (on/off), dimming, utility-grade energy metering and alerts for power losses or fixture issues. The cloud-based system ensures the property maintenance teams can run these controls remotely without the need to be on-site.
