Nualight and Cross Group have announced the first major LED-lighting retrofit project in the British Isles for convenience stores with the Spar chain making a major commitment to solid-state lighting (SSL) and the energy efficiency of the technology. The first phase of the project will cover Northern Ireland and Scotland, and plans are in place to also retrofit stores in England and Wales.
LED lighting has proven successful in convenience store applications around the globe. For example, we covered a Cree project at a gas station and convenience store back in early 2012.
Moreover, GE Lighting has retrofitted both a full-size Sainsbury’s grocery store and a convenience store in the UK.
