ShopRite Supermarkets have been clients of RLE for nearly 10 years (2012-present). In an effort to save energy, RLE Industries has been the “go to” company to meet largely all of ShopRite’s lighting needs.

RLE has provided 18 ShopRites in over the last ten years with their lighting packages.  Just these new stores include over 1 million 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 40% lower wattage per square foot, compared with The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (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.


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.
