March 13, 2012

Bill Ballweg, Lithonia LightingBill Ballweg, product development manager with Lithonia Lighting, is presenting the benefits of indoor ambient LED lighting to National Facilities Management & Technology Conference (NFMT) attendees in Baltimore on March 14, 2012.  Ballweg’s education session “Bagging Conventional Indoor Lighting for LED” focuses on sharing the success story of the first U.S. grocery store to be entirely lit with LEDs.

“The SuperValu story is an excellent example of the potential of LED lighting,” said Ballweg. “The 35,000-square-foot Supervalu property in Newton, MA was originally illuminated by conventional incandescent and fluorescent lights. Today, it is one of the first grocery stores in the nation to be entirely lit with LEDs.”

The Chestnut Hill Star Market is one of the nearly 200 stores in the Shaw’s/Star Market chain and a key member of the more than 2,200 grocery retail stores in the Supervalu family of supermarkets. Targeted as a test lab for energy-efficient technologies that Supervalu hopes to use in other stores, Star Market’s Chestnut Hill operation has become a model of sustainability.
