When Havertys Furniture evaluated its lighting portfolio across all 122 of its locations, the Southeast-region retailer wanted a solution that would benefit more than just its bottom line. The technology, performance and aesthetics of GE’s 14-watt LED Retail PAR38 lamps inspired Havertys to use GE products to retrofit existing stores and for new construction moving forward. The switch will mean an average $22,300 lighting cost savings per store per year (based on a $.10 kWh rate and 4,000 hours of operation) or $2.2 million company-wide.
Thanks in part to technology and the attention paid to energy efficiency, GE has become Havertys’ PAR38 LED lighting provider.For more information on this project, visit the GE Lighting pressroom or GELighting.com.
