In an age where sustainability and energy efficiency have become paramount, businesses are constantly seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint and lower operational costs. Often with paybacks of less than 2 years, it is no surprise that LED lighting continues to play a pivotal role in achieving these goals.

As a lighting company dedicated to designing and supplying cutting-edge lighting solutions, we understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve and delivering the best possible return on investment. That’s why we’re excited to share our journey in transforming retail and commercial spaces through LED retrofits.

Why Retrofit?

The lighting industry has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years, and the advent of LEDs has been a game-changer. LEDs are energy-efficient, durable, and offer superior lighting quality, making them the ideal choice for businesses looking to enhance their lighting systems.
When it comes to upgrading lighting systems, LED retrofits are a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution. Traditional lighting technologies, such as incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, are notorious for their high energy consumption and short lifespans. In contrast, LED retrofits can significantly reduce energy usage, maintenance costs, and carbon emissions.

Benefits of LED Retrofits for Retail & Commercial Spaces

Retail environments rely heavily on lighting to create attractive displays, enhance the shopping experience, and draw customers in. LED retrofits provide numerous benefits to retail businesses, including:
1. Enhanced Product Lighting: LED lighting offers crisp, bright illumination that showcases products and merchandise effectively.
2. Colour Rendering: LEDs provide superior colour rendering, allowing customers to see products in their best light and true colours.
3. Energy Savings: Lower energy consumption translates into reduced operational costs, boosting profitability.
4. Longevity: LEDs have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, reducing the frequency of replacements and maintenance.
5. Productivity Boost: In offices and warehouse lighting upgrades can also help to improve employee productivity and well-being.
6. Smart Lighting Controls: Whatever the environment, pairing a retrofit with smart lighting controls can deliver further energy savings by ensuring lights are only on when needed and at the output required for the daylight conditions.

JD Sports – Retail Stores

Through 2022 and 2023 we have been working with JD Sports to deliver LED upgrades to 120 Stores in the UK. With a typical Return on Investment within 2 Years these upgrades payback fast whilst also contributing to a significant reduction in carbon emissions for these stores.

Our LED Upgrades for JD Sports typically deliver a 60% reduction in Energy along with a 60% reduction in Carbon Footprint. In addition, maintenance costs are forecast to be reduced by up to 80% over the first 5 years following the upgrade.

River Island – Distribution Centre

We recently undertook an extensive upgrade of the UK Distribution Centre for River Island in Milton Keynes. The project required extensive development to identify the optimum solutions for the LED Upgrade. In this instance, the client was able to achieve an energy saving of 28.5% resulting in a payback of £1.2m/pa.
