Balzac Fresh Food Distribution Center - LED lights

The warehouse and parking lot is lit exclusively by LED lighting. LED lights are an estimated 69 % more energy-efficient than incandescents; produce significantly less waste heat, optimal for a refrigerated environment; and can last an estimated 20 years. LED lighting will save the company an estimated seven million kilowatt hours of electricity over five years and help avoid an estimated $645,000 in costs over the same period. Per year, that’s enough electricity to power an estimated 121 average-sized Canadian households.
