Energy Source Completes Retrofit of GNC Store

Energy Source, a division of Revolution Lighting Technologies, recently completed an LED retrofit project for GNC, a vitamin and supplement retailer. The LED retrofit took place at a store in Greenwich, Connecticut. The company says that the retrofit of GNC’s retail facility is a continuation of its work as a program contractor within the Energize Connecticut Small Business Energy Advantage Program (SBEA), managed by Eversource.

At the beginning of the project, Energy Source conducted a comprehensive assessment to develop the most energy efficient solution. The solution that the company created included the replacement of existing, outdated lighting with Revolution Lighting’s LED Tube solutions throughout the store’s retail, storage, and support spaces. The installation features 4000K LED tubes.

Energy Source expects the retrofit to reduce lighting energy use by at least 40% at the store. At the same time, the company claims that the new LED Tube lights deliver superior light output for GNC patrons.

Revolution Lighting boasts that its LED solutions last three times longer than conventional fluorescent lighting. The LED solutions combined with Revolution Lighting’s 10-year warranties, will give GNC significant long-term operational and maintenance cost savings. Energy Source projects that the upgrades will pay for themselves in less than three years.

The company managed every phase of the project including scope development, material selection, incentive procurement, and project management.

“The lighting upgrade was a quick and clean process. The new LED lighting provides a much cleaner and brighter look to my store,” said Michael Saluzzi, the GNC store owner. “I’m looking forward to the future cost-saving benefits.”

“We are proud to work with GNC, providing comprehensive turnkey services and our market leading LED solutions to exceed their project goals,” said Luke Connery, director of Business Development, Energy Source. “The selection by GNC to retrofit its retail facility reflects the confidence in Energy Source’s capability and experience to support businesses energy efficiency needs throughout the northeast.”

Energy Source’s completed work for GNC marks another successful CT SBEA project, managed by Eversource, offering LED retrofit solutions to the state’s 331,000 small businesses.
