A supermarket chain engaged principally in the retail sale of groceries, dairy products, frozen foods, meats, seafood, fresh produce, flowers, pharmacy services, deli products, prepared foods, bakery products, beer/wine, fuel, and general merchandise.


This supermarket chain needed a program to enhance the visual appeal of its refrigerated vertical cases while reducing its associated energy costs.


Reviewing the refrigerated display case specifications, we recognized that a traditional retrofit approach of replacing components with upgraded lamps and ballasts would not achieve the required improvement. We needed to recommend a solution that would slash energy and maintenance costs while enhancing the visual appeal of their vertical cases.


We offered a retrofit program created specifically for refrigerated vertical cases. GE’s Immersion™ RV40 LED Refrigerated Display Lighting cuts annual operating costs while improving illumination of the packaged products. The perfect replacement for fluorescent lighting, GE’s Immersion™ solution efficiently delivers bright uniform light on the inside of the case, while significantly reducing energy consumption and maintenance expenses. This is an easy to install solution, contains no lead or mercury as with other lighting sources, and is both RoHS and NSF compliant.  A rated life of 50,000 hours and a 5-year warranty are icing on the cake.


For a typical location with 18 cases and 83 door retrofits:

  1. An immediate $5,000 per year reduction in maintenance costs. An immediate 86% reduction in energy usage resulting in $6,100 annual utility cost savings.
  2. An annual reduction of 78,533 lbs. of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere Qualified for a $4,700 utility rebate.
