Energy Conservation Success Stories
The Yawkey Way Store is a longtime tradition in Boston sports souvenirs and memorabilia with a convenient high profile location on Yawkey Way directly across from Boston’s most beloved ballpark. In order to properly display all of their latest Boston sports hats, t-shirts, and jersey’s the store has used hundreds of incandescent bulbs which consume large amounts of energy and have a short service life. The use of incandescent lamp technology has lead to high utility costs and increased labor to replace bulbs at their end of life.
Over 300 fixtures were retrofitted with LED PAR lamps in order to provide brilliant energy efficient lighting to the store’s latest styles in Boston sports apparel and souvenirs.
By changing out the incandescent lamps with LED PAR lamps the Yawkey Way Store has reduced their lighting load by as much as 75%, and increased the life of each light from 2,500 hours to 50,000 hours while maintaining the desired light levels for their retail space.
