Walmart and GE Transforming Retail Lighting with Energy-Efficient LEDs Globally

Walmart announced plans today to purchase energy-efficient LED ceiling lighting fixtures for new super-centers in the USA, stores in Asia and Latin America, and in the United Kingdom. The new fixtures will use 40 percent less energy than lighting sources historically used in stores, and will help further the retailer’s goal to reduce the kilowatt hour (kWh) per square foot of energy required to power Walmart’s buildings globally 20 percent by 2020. This is Walmart’s largest purchase of GE LED lighting to date, and the most recent example of leadership from Walmart and GE to find and scale innovative, energy-efficient lighting solutions.
