Raley’s® Petroleum Station & Convenience Store
Cree® luminaires controlled with an integrated wireless dimming system provide an energy efficient lighting solution allowing Raley’s® to achieve less than a one year payback on the installation.
Raley’s® Family of Fine Stores – considered one of the most environmentally-advanced grocery chains in the nation – is dedicated to improving sustainable operations in its 128 stores. A goal for the California-based provider of fresh markets, convenience stores and petroleum stations is reducing overall energy consumption in new store construction and upgrades to existing locations. When Raley’s® energy and utility manager Randy Walthers sought an efficient lighting system for a new location, in South Lake Tahoe he looked for an improvement over the fluorescent, metal halide and halogen spot lighting systems that were causing maintenance issues at existing store and petroleum station locations. His search led him to Hi-Def Lighting & Electric Inc. who specified interior and exterior LED lighting equipped with a sophisticated control system that achieves California’s daylight control requirement.
