Committed to reducing its energy costs and ecological footprint, this gas station in Caldas da Rainha will reduce its energy consumption by 80% (from 4818kWh to 974kWh) and save €680 per year thanks to a new LED lighting solution. Six recessed Percepto luminaires (73W) have been fitted into the canopy to replace the original 250W metal halide fixtures. All of the luminaires are lit until 9pm while all the pumps are available. From 9pm, only 2 pumps work and the 2 Percepto luminaires to light this area are equipped with motion detection sensors to dim the lighting levels if there are no customers. As soon as a vehicle arrives, the lighting levels return to 100%.
The energy efficient and maintenance free Percepto luminaires are ideal for gas stations which are open 24 hours a day and offer an early payback, just over 4 years for this gas station. The owner is equally delighted as the Percepto luminaires have also improved the lighting levels, making the environment appear brighter and safer which translates into a better customer experience.
