C-store chain in money-saving lighting retrofit


Quik Mart Stores has made the move to LED lighting.

The Tucson, Arizona-based convenience store/gas station chain replaced the existing fluorescent and HID interior and exterior lighting with solid state LED lighting at 25 locations in the Tucson market.

The retrofit was completed by SCS Energy Solutions Corp.’s SCS Lighting Division, which also developed a solution for beverage and freezer cooler lighting, as well as enhancing existing merchandise displays.

In addition to providing higher quality lighting and standardized color rendering, Quik Mart will realize significant capital savings, according to SCS. It estimated the retrofit will save the retailer $200,968 annually, totaling a reduction of 77% in lighting costs for Quik Mart.

"The capital improvements SCS completed in a short amount of time have not only increased the overall look of the stores, but have allowed us the capital flexibility to improve other aspects of our business,” said Troy Little, CEO, Quik Mart, which operates 33 convenience stores in Arizona, with two more in the works.

SCS Energy Solutions put together a custom, comprehensive financing package for Quik Mart, ensuring positive cash flow from day one of install, throughout the 24 month payment term. SCS also processed and followed through on all applicable rebate incentives with the local utility provider.
