Retail Planning

Last year, I spent 118,000 planning a second store. It has not happened yet, functional word yet, but it is easy to understand how commercial lighting is adapted to residential.

Lamp choices will change in 10 years. In a new store, the most expensive part is the HVAC system, lets look at the impact of bulbs in adding added temperature (and more cost) into the room.

Incandescent - 300 degrees

Fluorescent - 100 degrees

LED - 0 added heat

Think of the savings over the lifetime...Roughly $1122 over 17 years per bulb PLUS the savings to to HVAC.
