Lower Your Total Cost
of Ownership

By creating a budget plan for a new project, perhaps the most important aspect is the amount of Total Cost of Ownership. Knowing how to reduce your TCO is essential – and GE Lighting can help you solve this daunting task.

By choosing GE LED lighting solution products for your project, you can minimize material, energy, and maintenance costs

- as well as shorten the waiting period of investment returns.

Less Material,
Higher Light Output

Doing „more with less” is vital in today's economic environment. Using GE LED lighting solutions help you reduce your TCO due to various simple reasons.

One reason being, less material is needed achieve the same amount of light emission.

Furthermore, it is not only the amount, but the quality which is very impressive: the light is consistent and homogenous. As a result, there are no shades, stripes or spots, giving a unique presentation to your store.

Reduce Your Energy Bills Up
to 70%

Additionally, GE LED lighting is also very energy-efficient: with a reliable long lifetime based on true tests, they can consume significantly less than any traditional application.

While lighting your convenience store, another important factor to take into consideration is that the higher temperature caused by the lighting causes overexertion of the refrigerator compressors, since they have to use more energy to reach the level of cooling required for optimal product preservation. The changeover to Immersion RV40 LED lighting systems can reduce energy costs and also lengthen the lifecycle of the refrigerators, as they do not have to run above the programmed power.

Shorten Your ROI Period

According to the above mentioned features, GE's LED lighting applications also shorten the time of ROI: by using these systems, the return of investment can even be less than 2 years.

Figure 1. shows an example of an actual GE Lighting project for Repsol in Spain. There were 3,000 Immersion RV40 LED luminaires installed in the refrigerators of 570 Repsol stations. The Immersion RV40 RDL luminaire has a lifetime of up to 50,000 hours and provides more than 1,000 lumens with only 16 watts of power, which reduces energy, maintenance and relamping costs and at the same time CO2 emissions.

After retrofitting their convenience stores, Repsol was not only able to save 75% of their energy costs, but their reduced maintenance costs also save them 203,000 € / annum.
