ShopRite Supermarkets have been clients of RLE for nearly 10 years. In an effort to save energy, RLE Industries has been the “go to” company to meet all of ShopRite’s lighting needs.
Last year alone, RLE provided ShopRite Vista-Slingerlands, Colonie, Albany and Niskayuna in New York State with their lighting packages. Just these new stores include over 250,000 sq. feet of supermarket retail space. Through the implementation of RLE’s energy-efficient LED and fluorescent lighting systems, these stores are operating at almost 25% lower wattage per square foot, compared with ASHRAE standards.
ShopRite’s existing lighting fixtures were Metal Halide track heads and Surface Mount Metal Halide fixtures. They upgraded to LED’s. RLE converted these fixtures to LED tracks and track heads and surface mounted LED luminaries’ to reduce electricity and maintenance costs. ShopRite expects the LED luminaires to provide their lighting for at least 5 years.
RLE coordinated with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) on behalf of ShopRite Supermarkets to apply and assist in receiving rebates for all eligible lighting products through the New Construction Program.
