This demonstration is one in a series of advanced lighting demonstration projects completed through a joint initiative between the DesignLightsTM Consortium and the U.S. Department of Energy.
The Stop & Shop in New Bedford, Massachusetts upgraded the fluorescent lighting in its 73,000 sq ft grocery stores to new LED technology with advanced controls using Current’s Daintree ControlScope® Manager (CSM). LED luminaires were shipped with pre-installed Zigbee-enabled controls compatible with the Daintree Control System. All luminaires were set up with built-in occupancy and daylight harvesting sensors and can be task tuned with Daintree software. Replacement of the older fluorescents with LEDs saved 30% of the estimated annual lighting energy use. Energy savings increased by an additional 36% with task tuning and occupancy and daylight sensing controls.
