US Foodservice Expects Big Savings From Freezer Lighting Retrofits

U.S. Foodservice is completing a lighting retrofit project, deploying Orion’s LED technology and intelligent occupancy sensors in freezers at five of its facilities.

U.S. Foodservice will replace 400-watt High Intensity Discharge (HID) fixtures with 150-watt Orion LED fixtures. The actual number of new fixtures installed will be 15% less than what is currently installed. The reduction in watts consumed is expected to decrease the amount of electricity the food-service distributor uses in its freezers by 1.5 million kilowatt-hours a year, while at the same time increase light levels by 30%.

U.S. Foodservice began deploying Orion technology in 2009. To date, the company is reducing its energy consumption for lighting by 30-million kilowatt-hours and saving $3.3-million per year.   As a result, U.S. Foodservice will reduce 19,076 tons of greenhouse gasses annually including carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and mercury.
