Nalley Lexus of Roswell Slashes Energy Expenses 86% with LED Lighting Upgrade
Date Announced: 20 Dec 2010
“This LED retrofit has reduced the dealership’s exterior-lighting expenses by 86.6% while increasing its lumen output by
19% compared to their metal halide predecessors “
“Auto dealers want to focus on satisfying customers, not worrying about burned-out light bulbs,” said George Karolis, vice president of corporate development and real estate at Asbury Automotive Group. “I believe every automotive dealer confronts the same set of challenges with their lighting infrastructure—it consumes too much electricity, the bulbs burn out frequently and the quality of the light is poor given the amount of energy used. Qnuru has great LED solutions that solve a problem we have been struggling with for years.”
Qnuru retrofitted Nalley Lexus of Roswell’s exterior pole-mounted parking lot lights with its 144 watt Vector Pecos bulb. Designed to replace energy intensive 750-1000 watt high intensity discharge lamps, the Pecos bulb offers an even photometric footprint, daylight-quality light (CRI of 74.8) and instant on capabilities. The Pecos bulbs are based on high bin Cree LEDS (Nasdaq: CREE) which have a rated life of 50,000 hours and come with Qnuru’s 5-year warranty, independent LM79 verification, and are ETL-Classified in the U.S. and Canada.
