Whole Foods Market partners with ReGreen for a complete energy efficient upgrade of its lighting throughout their Southern Pacific Region. As part of the design process, ReGreen performed lighting and energy assessments at each of stores along with an analysis of the visual environments. ReGreen has installed lighting upgrades for 37 Whole Foods stores and will continue to work with the grocery chain on future projects in the region.
ReGreen developed custom lighting packages for each store which saved Whole Foods Market over 56% in energy usage, reduced maintenance costs, and created an enhanced shopping experience for customers. In addition, these designs display vibrant colors, control glare, and increase safety at task locations throughout the stores.
These lighting upgrades produced considerable results for Whole Foods Markets across the region. Lighting energy was reduced by 56%, saving the grocery chain $1.4 million in utility bills every year. Along with the massive energy savings, Whole Foods Market is reducing their CO2 emission by 1426 gas vehicles per year.
ReGreen opened its doors with the idea that with our passion, expertise, and technology, we could provide clean energy solutions that make financial sense. Specializing in Lighting, Solar, and Intelligent Building Controls, ReGreen takes pride in consistently finding the balance between maximum energy savings, design, and return on investment.
