Cree LED Lighting Transforms Famous Petty’s Garage

Richard Petty, nicknamed “The King” of NASCAR®, has endorsed
Cree® LED lighting after transforming his 100,000 square-foot
garage with  LED fixtures by Cree, Inc.. More than 700 Cree LED
luminaires now illuminate the Petty’s Garage complex, which
specializes in restoring high-performance vehicles, stock cars, drag
racers, and Petty signature cars. Partnering with Greenleaf Energy
Solutions, Petty’s Garage installed Cree’s LED lighting, featuring
Cree TrueWhite® Technology. According to Greenleaf Energy
Solutions, the installation reduces lighting energy usage more than
50 percent compared with the previous fluorescents and decreases the
number of light fixtures needed by 10 percent.

“We know that Cree produces the best LED technology in the
world,”
said Stephen Moffitt, energy consultant, Greenleaf
Energy Solutions. “Cree was the clear choice for Petty’s
Garage.”


“Cree LED lighting delivers the quality of light we need for
the work in our garage, allowing us to focus on our business of
redoing cars,”
said Petty. “We turned these lights on, and
they made our cars and shop look brand new. There’s really only
one word to describe Cree’s lights – wow.”
