Walgreens Uses Acuity Brands Lighting to Conduct First 100% LED Retrofit



Walgreens selected LED lighting from Acuity Brands Inc. (NYSE: AYI) to improve customer experiences and reduce energy usage in its 15,900 square-foot Buffalo Grove, Illinois store. The Buffalo Grove location was previously equipped with traditional fluorescent fixtures on the sales floor and metal halide fixtures in exterior soffits.
Walgreens installed RT Series LED luminaires from Lithonia Lighting® throughout the sales floor. Additionally, Z Series LED Strip lights were installed in the vestibule, and for architectural downlighting, Ecos™ Square LED downlights from Gotham® were installed in the pharmacy. Acculamp® PAR38 LED lamps were installed in the track lighting throughout the facility. Walgreens also installed VAP ARCHWAY™ PASSAGE™ LED luminaires from Lithonia Lighting in the back stock room.
