We’re proud to announce the opening of our first-ever all LED-lit store in South Euclid, Ohio, just outside of Cleveland. This store will serve as a model for environmentally-friendly design for our future stores, with 100 percent LED lighting, electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot, and more.
LED lighting is 80 percent more efficient than traditional lightbulbs. Apply that efficiency to a Walmart supercenter, and we’re talking a lot of energy savings. In fact, the LED lighting we’re using in the grocery section of our South Euclid store alone will save more than 59,000 kWh a year – which is enough energy to power five single-family homes.
We’re so excited about all the benefits of LED lighting, we just launched a line of Great Value LED bulbs for consumers earlier this month starting at under $10, one of the lowest priced LED lightbulbs on the market. Our use of LEDs goes back several years when we started lighting our freezer cases with the technology, and it’s now the standard for all new Walmart facilitates around the globe.
Take a look at some of the other exciting energy-efficient features of the South Euclid store:
