New Look aims to slash energy costs with LED lighting

High street fashion chain New Look is set to install energy efficient LED lighting in 600 stores across the UK as it looks to reduce energy consumption and cut costs.

As part of the project, electrical supplier Rexel will upgrade New Look’s existing halogen lamps to LED lighting, which will last-longer and produce less light heat. This is expected to result in air conditioning savings and generate return on investment in 15 months.

An asset audit of each new Look site will be conducted by Rexel to identify the best energy saving approach and enable the right products to be fitted on each site efficiently.

New Look group property director Richard White, said: Rexel’s extensive UK footprint means that inventory could be sourced near our store locations, reducing delivery time and eliminating unnecessary haulage.”

Rexel business development director Brian Smithers added:”It’s fantastic to be chosen by such a well-known British brand.

“We’re looking forward to working with the New Look team to deliver significant energy savings in their 600 high-street shops. Reducing energy consumption is increasingly important to New Look and we were able to help them achieve this goal while keeping costs down.”
