New lighting from the SCS Lighting Division will result in substantial savings on lighting costs for Quik Mart.
New lighting upgrades have been installed at 25 Quik Mart convenience store locations throughout Arizona, and employees and customers have noticed the improvements.
The SCS Lighting Division recently replaced the existing fluorescent and HID interior/exterior lighting with solid state LED lighting at the 25 Quik Mart convenience store/gas station locations. SCS Lighting also developed a solution to costly beverage and freezer cooler lighting, as well as enhancing existing merchandise displays.
In addition to providing higher quality lighting and standardized color rendering inside of stores and under gas station canopies, Quik Mart management will realize significant capital savings upon the completion of this project.
Savings by the Numbers
- Previous kWh usage was 1,703,819 kWh per year at an annual cost of $260,069.94.
- The LED upgrade reduced the annual kWh usage to 472,813 kWh per year at an annual cost of $59,101.71.
- This is a savings to the bottom line of $200,968.23 per year, totaling a 77% reduction in lighting costs for Quik Mart.
Customers and employees have commented how much brighter and improved the lighting is in-store, in the reach in coolers, and under the gas station canopy. “The new lighting makes the stores look modern and cleaner inside and much brighter and safer on the outside,” said a Quik Mart Store 22 employee.
“The beverage coolers and candy racks caught my eye when I first walked in the door,” said one Quik Mart customer from Store 22.
“The capital improvements SCS completed in a short amount of time have not only increased the overall look of the stores, but have allowed us the capital flexibility to improve other aspects of our business,” said Troy Little, CEO Quik Mart.
The SCS Energy Solutions – Finance Division- put together a custom, comprehensive financing package for Quik Mart, ensuring positive cash flow from day one of install, throughout the 24 month payment term. SCS also processed and followed through on all applicable rebate incentives with the local utility provider.
