Previously, the ten-fuel dispenser island canopy was illuminated with 320-watt metal halide (MH) fixtures. Thirty Cree 304 Series™ 142-watt luminaires replaced 56 MH fixtures. The reduction in fixtures and wattage use reduced energy consumption by an astounding 80 percent. Additionally, Timewise will realize a three-year payback on this investment, but more important is the positive impact the Cree lighting upgrade makes in their community and to the overall customer experience at their site.
“Retrofitting the canopy with energy-efficient Cree luminaires is not just good business for Timewise Shell, but it’s good for our community,” said Steve Dujka, Landmark Industries comptroller. “This is another example of how Landmark Industries and Timewise Shell are cornerstones of the community, whether in our charitable giving, delivering the products and services that consumers need, or taking the lead in creating a sustainable future.”
In addition to upgrading the fuel island canopy, Timewise Shell replaced the car wash canopy metal halide fixtures with 18 Cree luminaires in a one-for-one replacement, providing a remarkable 61 percent energy savings.
