Quik Mart Franchise in Arizona Slashes Energy Costs with LED Lights

The SCS Lighting Division recently replaced existing fluorescent and HID interior/exterior lighting with solid state LED lighting at 25 locations for the popular AZ convenience store/gas station chain.  SCS Lighting also developed a solution to costly beverage and freezer cooler lighting, as well as enhancing existing merchandise displays.

In addition to providing higher quality lighting and standardized color rendering inside of stores and under gas station canopies, Quik Mart management will realize significant capital savings upon the completion of this project.
