LED lighting on retail sites

Forecourt power and lighting accounts for more than a quarter of Z’s total retail electricity use. As a sustainable company, we reckon it’s important to reduce energy use.

We’ve completed a nationwide project to change out all of the external lighting in our service station canopies with energy-efficient LED lighting. We invested $3.1 million in a six-month LED canopy lighting replacement project, supported by a $580,000 business grant from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA).

Energy efficiency

We’re constantly looking at ways we can reduce both the cost and the carbon emissions of running our retail operations.

We’ve been working with our suppliers to identify how we can run our retail sites more efficiently. Some examples include making sure our refrigeration units and HVAC units aren’t working against each other; installing automatic sensors on doors; and installing pull-down screens on open fridge units. We’ve worked with our suppliers to identify new generation chillers that we’ll install at our new-build sites, which can save at least 40% on our current refrigeration energy usage.
