Like many of his neighbors, store owner Craig Hunt was frustrated with the rising cost of electricity in Massachusetts and the impact it was having on his operating expenses. Overhead costs in the convenience store industry have been growing and the recent 37 percent electricity rate hike made his margins even tighter.
Interim Furnishings had relocated to a larger warehouse space and inherited numerous old fluorescent task lights. Of the 365 fixtures in the building, only half were working but all were drawing power. Instead of purchasing and installing more outdated and unreliable fluorescent bulbs, Interim decided to replace their entire lighting system with new energy efficient LED fixtures and install occupancy sensors throughout the building.

I’m very pleased with the overall value that Trust Energy has provided both during and after the retrofit project. The store looks great and I immediately noticed the savings on my electric bill. I’ve continued working with Trust Energy to leverage the upgrade and increase sales by promoting the new ‘green’ changes to the store.
