LED Lighting Cuts Costs Reduces Spoilage

This article written by Hank Daniszewski of The London Free Press, London, Ontario Canada, is about how a local market is reaping many benefits after installing LED lighting. Covent Garden Market is an Indoor and Outdoor Farmers Market in southwestern Ontario. The market has been around since 1845 and attracts local growers and artisans with fresh foods and crafts. The market recently installed an LED lighting system that has cut lighting costs, reduced air conditioning costs and even slowed the spoilage of fruits and vegetables. “They’re much cooler,” says Chris Doris of Doris Family Produce. “That’s good for the produce and more comfortable for the customers.” Two London companies, Ecopower Inc. and Stein Industries Inc., partnered to produce the lighting system. The system uses automatic sensors that raise or lower light levels in response to daylight shining through windows which lowers electrical use even more . Light levels can also be manipulated by using a wireless controller that can control different lighting zones throughout the building. Electricity savings have reached 84% in areas where the system is installed.
