Good lighting can affect supermarket operating costs and customers and employee satisfaction. This store in Old Lyme, Connecticut, updated its lighting to improve customer appeal and save energy. The new design eliminates incandescent lighting entirely and instead uses T8 fluorescent lighting, with double-ended compact metal halide and compact fluorescent lamps for specialty areas. Automatic controls make the most of daylight and lower light levels at night.
