Rumsey Electric Co., Malvern, Pa., did a complete lighting renovation in its new Malvern Store to showcase the advantages LED lighting offers compared with Incandescents. The state-of-the-art LED system lights the main sales floor, warehouse, office, conference room and exterior surfaces.
In a release about the retrofit project, Rumsey said it first started looking into energy efficient lighting for the Malvern facility to demonstrate a system that would be energy efficient, low maintenance, pleasing to the eye while hopefully creating a low carbon footprint. They considered a linear T8 florescent system and a HID metal halide, but said LED beat the others cold in every category. "When it came to energy, performance, high quality, color and upkeep, there was no system that had it all like the LED system."
