High-Performance Cree LED Lighting Transforms Famous Petty’s Garage

Stocks in this article: CREE

Nicknamed “The King” of NASCAR ®, Richard Petty has endorsed Cree ® LED lighting after enthusiastically transforming his 100,000 square-foot garage with state-of-the-art LED fixtures by Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE). More than 700 Cree LED luminaires now illuminate the Petty’s Garage complex, which specializes in the restoration of high-performance vehicles, stock cars, drag racers and Petty signature cars.

Partnering with Greenleaf Energy Solutions, Petty’s Garage installed Cree’s industry-leading LED lighting, featuring Cree TrueWhite ® Technology. According to Greenleaf Energy Solutions, when compared with the previous fluorescents, the installation reduces lighting energy usage more than 50 percent and decreases the number of light fixtures needed by 10 percent.

“We know that Cree produces the best LED technology in the world,” said Stephen Moffitt, energy consultant, Greenleaf Energy Solutions. “Cree was the clear choice for Petty’s Garage.”

“Cree LED lighting delivers the quality of light we need for the work in our garage, allowing us to focus on our business of redoing cars,” said Petty. “We turned these lights on, and they made our cars and shop look brand new. There’s really only one word to describe Cree’s lights – wow.”

Cree CR24 LED troffers were installed in the main production facility with LR24 LED troffers and CS18 LED linear luminaires featured throughout the complex. The next stage of the installation will bring Cree Edge security and floodlights and LEDway ® streetlights to the property.

“High-quality, long-lasting LED lighting dramatically enhances the auto restoration experience at Petty’s Garage,” said Tami Timperio, vice president of communications, lighting at Cree. “Our LED troffers feature industry-leading Cree TrueWhite Technology with 90 CRI that really makes cars pop. Designed to deliver lifetimes of more than 50,000 hours, Cree’s LED troffers can virtually eliminate the time and expense associated with replacing fixtures for auto dealers and shop owners.”
