Energy Source Completes LED Retrofit for GNC Facility
PROVIDENCE, R.I., Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Energy Source, a division of Revolution Lighting Technologies, today announced that it has recently completed an LED retrofit project for GNC, a vitamin and supplement retailer. The LED retrofit took place at a store located in Greenwich, Connecticut. The retrofit of GNC’s retail facility is a continuation of Energy Source’s success as a program contractor within the Energize Connecticut Small Business Energy Advantage Program (SBEA), managed by Eversource.
The project began with a comprehensive assessment by Energy Source to develop the most energy efficient solution. This included the replacement of existing antiquated lighting with Revolution Lighting’s high performance LED Tube solutions throughout the store’s retail, storage and support spaces. The retrofit is expected to reduce lighting energy use by at least 40%, while delivering superior light output to ensure a high-quality shopping environment for its patrons.
These benefits, combined with the superior lamp life of Revolution Lighting’s LED solutions, lasting three times longer than conventional fluorescent lighting, and combined with market leading 10-year warranties, will provide significant long-term operational and maintenance cost savings for GNC, with upgrades paying for themselves in less than three years.
Energy Source managed every phase of the project, providing turnkey services that included scope development, material selection, incentive procurement, and project management.
“The lighting upgrade was a quick and clean process. The new LED lighting provides a much cleaner and brighter look to my store,” said Michael Saluzzi, Owner. “I’m looking forward to the future cost saving benefits.”
“We are proud to work with GNC, providing comprehensive turnkey services and our market leading LED solutions to exceed their project goals,” said Luke Connery, Director of Business Development, Energy Source. “The selection by GNC to retrofit its retail facility reflects the confidence in Energy Source’s capability and experience to support businesses energy efficiency needs throughout the northeast.”
The completed work for GNC marks another successful CT SBEA project, managed by Eversource, supporting the state’s 331,000 small businesses with high efficiency LED lighting retrofit opportunities.
