GE's Immersion(TM) LED Lighting Systems Will Help Save Stater Bros. Approximately $570,000 In Annual Energy And Maintenance Costs. (Photo: General Electric)

Beginning with its first store in 1936, Stater Bros. (San Bernardino, Calif.) has a long history of doing right by its customers. It also has a long history of doing right by the environment. To deepen its commitment to reducing energy usage, Stater Bros. retrofit the frozen-food cases in nearly all of its 166 stores with GE’s LED refrigerated display lighting. The switch from fluorescent lights to GE’s Immersion™ RV40 LED system translates to total annual energy and maintenance savings of approximately $570,000.

After evaluating lighting options from five different manufacturers, Stater Bros.’ retail marketing team chose GE’s 17-watt Immersion RV40 LED lighting systems to replace the 60-watt fluorescent fixtures in freezer cases.

“We’ve received great feedback from customers and store managers,” said Scott Limbacher, vice president, Construction/Maintenance at Stater Bros. “Our managers tell us the new lighting really makes their products pop.”

By replacing 60-watt fluorescent lamps with GE’s 17-watt LED lighting, Stater Bros. will use 28,444 fewer kilowatt hours (kWh) per store per year, a savings of approximately 4.6 million kWh across the 163 participating stores and equating to about $510,000 in annual savings (based on an $0.11 kWh rate and 17 hours of operation a day). The long-life Immersion RV40 LED lighting system also contributes to an 80 percent reduction in maintenance costs—totaling nearly $60,000 in savings annually across all locations for Stater Bros.
