Ace Hardware Corporation has upgraded the lighting in areas of its 1,000,000 square foot Rocklin, California (US), Retail Support Center to the Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System. Since implementing the upgrade in October 2013, Ace Hardware saved an average of 81% on its lighting-related energy use.

The PG&E study found that compared to basic LEDs, systems with “aggressive advanced controls,” like the Digital Lumens system, delivered 43% more energy savings, and a reduction of 93% over the previously installed metal halide fixtures.

By replacing the facility’s 1,653 fixtures (1,551 T5 fluorescent and 102 metal halide), Ace Hardware has reduced its power usage per square foot by 39.56%, while improving light quality and illumination levels throughout the facility.
