If you own or operate a business, you know every dollar saved in energy costs goes straight to the bottom line to improve your profit margin.

This is especially true for grocery and convenience stores where lighting and refrigeration are primary energy users.

By upgrading to LED lighting indoors, you can reduce costs and improve the appearance of displays and products.

Because LED lighting does not generate much heat, it also helps to reduce compressor runtimes in refrigerated cases, saving even more electricity.

Beneath gas station canopies, LED lighting reduces energy and maintenance costs and can enhance customer safety.

Rocky Mountain Power’s wattsmart Business program makes saving energy easy by providing cash incentives to cover part of the project cost for energy-efficient equipment upgrades.
