By replacing existing metal halide sources, the LEDs are expected to reduce electrical load by around 50 per cent for each store.
The news comes after clothes retailer Next announced that it is to install 110,000 LED luminaires in its UK stores, replacing 12V dichroic lamps.
The White Company said that Reggiani Lighting was selected for its interchangeable optics system, designed to allow alignment of light distribution to the configuration of merchandise in each space.
David Giddings, account manager at Reggiani, said: ‘They’re realising the importance of energy savings. Being carbon neutral is a big factor for them; that’s what drives them. And because our LEDs are really efficient, their costs are dropping considerably.’
The payback period for the new lighting is expected to be between one and two years for each store.
