Fresh & Easy Undertakes LED Retrofit Project

Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, the US subsidiary of Tesco plc, will have its medium temperature cases in its 159 stores retrofitted with LED lighting through a partnership of Nualight Ltd, a manufacturer of LED lighting solutions for retail, and Kysor/Warren, a manufacturer of refrigerated cases in North America.

All meat, dairy and fish cases will be upgraded to LED replacing the existing T5 Fluorescent canopy and undershelf lighting. Fresh & Easy currently uses LED lighting in external signs and freezer cases.

Nualight’s LED lightbars are installed in a  number of international food chains, including Tesco plc, Switzerland’s Migros and Co-op chains and Rewe in Germany. Nualight says it is shipping in volume from its local assembly base in Michigan to major case manufacturers supplying retailers in North America.

“Our success retrofitting the Group’s Tesco stores internationally led to this opportunity, and this newest assignment provides a valuable springboard for our expansion into the US market,” said Nualight VP Bruce Schneider, who heads up US operations.

Retail stores are among the highest commercial users of energy with lighting and refrigeration accounting for 78 percent of all energy usage in supermarkets. LED fixtures allow energy savings of up to 60 percent, both from lighting and refrigeration energy, according to Nualight.

One thought on “Fresh & Easy Undertakes LED Retrofit Project

  1. First, I’d like to applaud Tesco for making so much effort in helping the environment and using energy efficient lighting, though I’m sure the significantly reduced energy consumption was also a reason.
    While LED lights do consume less than fluorescent light, the technology is still relatively new and has its drawbacks: it does not produce as much light, and since it’s a new technology you may have to replace the whole system when it burns out.
    This research article does a very good job at comparing T5s and LED lights : http://www.lumiversal.com/upload/T5%20v.%20LED.pdf
