Success Story

Cyclepath, Portland

Estimated annual savings: 10,100 kWh

Cyclepath, a high-end bike shop for cycling enthusiasts, invested in new LED lighting throughout the store to save energy, reduce maintenance costs and shine a brighter light on its luxury products.

The retailer’s previous lighting was inefficient and cost the business plenty in maintenance and repair costs. With help from Energy Trust, Cyclepath installed a mix of LED spots, floods and bulbs that adjust to changes in seasonal light. The improved lighting is energy efficient, long-lasting and adds an extra gleam to top quality merchandise.

Energy Trust provided $825 in cash incentives that covered nearly half the cost of the energy saving improvements, which are expected to save 10,100 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.

“We’ve got the lighting dialed now,” said Mitch Lomacz, Cyclepath. “The space is well-lit without being too bright and our displays look much better. LEDs are a high performance product that match the high-quality standards of our business model.”
