Macy’s Says Lighting Retrofit Will Cut Energy Consumption 73%

Macy’s is retrofitting more than 117,000 halogen-based accent lighting in 86 department stores across the nation in a sustainability campaign that expects to reduce the retailer’s energy consumption by 73%.

Philips custom-designed and produced thousands of the 13-watt EnduraLED PAR38 SP15 lamps that could meet Macy’s sustainability goals, as well as provide better light quality to enhance the customer shopping experience.

The lamp has a rated average life of 45,000 hours and the potential to deliver a positive return on investment in less than one year, according to Philips.

Macy’s is replacing its 47-watt halogen lights, a step that makes it the first department store to implement the use of LED accent lighting on a wide scale. Lighting represents one of the largest components of a retailer’s energy use.

Philips’ lamp has a custom-beam angle for more control in accenting merchandise, as well as an optimal color temperature that brings out tones and characteristics of merchandise.

Philips Lighting was a key partner in the development of New York City’s new crystal and LED-lighted New Year’s Eve ball that debuted in Times Square last year.

  1. What am I missing in the math here?
    43w bulb to 17w bulb. Reduction of 26w. 26/43 = 60%
    Lighting has a decent impact on cooling loads in the summer (in winter an economizer mode will do the cooling) Are they saying the other 13% for their ENTIRE ELECTRICAL LOAD is air conditioning load in summer months for the heat produced by the halogen lights?

    This is just one type of light bulb. There are countless other lights in Macy’s.
