Pilot Flying J in LED lighting retrofit


Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, is upgrading the indoor and outdoor lighting at select locations.

The company has entered into an agreement with Cree for an LED retrofit of interior and exterior lighting, to include parking lot canopies, downlights and area luminaires for various new and existing travel centers. The program is underway, with retrofits completed at nearly 100 Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers to-date and plans to roll out dozens of new stores annually over the next five years.

“Cree’s canopies, troffers and area LED lighting provides better light that enhances customer experiences at the pump and inside our travel centers,” said Bryan Martin, Pilot Flying J energy manager. “As Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers are open 24 hours each day, this upgrade will also generate long-term energy reductions and material maintenance savings due to avoiding ballast and lamp change outs.

The project is anticipated to generate significant energy savings and eliminate nearly all lighting-related maintenance costs over the duration of Cree’s 10-year warranty.
