In August of 2013, Maroochy Day Night Pharmacy underwent a complete lighting retrofit, replacing all existing lighting with energy efficient LED solutions.
The existing lighting within the building consisted of over 40 twin fluorescent tubes, 26 metal halide downlights and 13 twin PL cans (twin compact fluorescent downlights) – all of which was costing approximately $9,090 per year in electricity and an equivalent amount in maintenance costs.
Now LED panels can be seen throughout the entire building, replacing old and inefficient fluorescent technology along with new Vega down lights shining directly onto product walls and counters.
- 50%+ reduction in power use associated with lighting.
- Eliminate maintenance costs for the next 5-6years
- Increased light levels which directly result in higher sales
“Empyrean has helped us find something, better, more efficient and greener. We have a solution that is able to highlight our products better than before and our first full billing cycle after the install showed a dramatic decrease in energy consumption. The fact that we are also making a contribution to the environment at the same time made it another win for us.” – Stephen Young, Owner.
