Multi-million dollar deal to install LED lighting in cold systems

800 UK coop stores are to install LED lighting in their refrigerator, freezers and ice cream cabinets to save energy.
There is a niche for LEDs on these appliances as the doors would create dark spots, which LEDs will cover for, this being the case for ice-creams and “luxury” deserts, which need the best light exposure to bring out the richness of colors of the packaging.

“The motivation for introducing LED lighting solutions to our stores arose primarily from our unique commitment to sustainable retailing practices,” explained Alex Pitman, Energy and Carbon Manager at the Co-operative Group. With these actions, Coop has one of the toughest carbon reduction targets of the UK.
