Lighting is an instrumental part of the retail experience. Good lighting invites and welcomes customers as well as highlighting and showcasing products. Choosing the proper color temperature, beam angle, and total lumens will aid in increased customer satisfaction and approval.
Maintenance: A store operates its lights for an average of 13 hours per day. A 45 watt incandescent lamp will last an average of 1500 hours. At this rate, the lamp will need to be replaced every 3 months. A restaurant or lodging property needs to factor in the cost and time of replacing each lamp. An Ohyama Lights LED lamp will last 40,000 hours or about 8.5 years.
Operation Costs: LED lamps consume only 10% of the energy of a comparable incandescent lamp. At $0.11 kw/h, it costs a store $10.95 in electricity to power a single 60 watt incandescent lamp. Switch to an Ohyama Lights 6 watt LED lamp and that cost is reduced to $1.10. Multiply that savings by the number of lamps in a facility and the savings adds up quickly!
Rebates: Many Utility companies and communities nationwide are offering incentives for businesses to upgrade to LED Lighting. Visit your utility company's website to learn of the easy rebates and/or financing that is available for new luminaires and lamps.
