Lighting for retail store settings needs to encompass a variety of atmospherics that will provide optimal light quality and create an ambiance conducive to buying. Your customers have a multitude of options when considering where to shop. You have only one chance to make a first impression as they approach your store. We provide a vast array of technologies for retail store lighting that can dramatically decrease operating costs and improve performance.

In the retail sector—including banks, grocery stores, drugstores, and big-box stores--lighting creates a positive customer experience and increases sales. Offering endless design opportunities, light can help retailers captivate shoppers, set the mood, and showcase products brilliantly in their true colors. Exterior lighting highlights landscaping and building facades while increasing safety in parking areas.

By automating portfolio management, clients can lock thermostats, view energy consumption in real-time, receive fault detection notifications, and prioritize energy upgrades to maximize savings. Retailers can also capitalize their parking lot’s utility by installing electric vehicle charging stations to attract desirable shoppers.  Lighting for retail store applications requires a meticulously efficient design in order to limit costly energy loss, and maximize navigational safety. Whether you have a single site or multiple locations WESCO Energy Solutions can provide you with complete lighting and electrical solutions. We can even provide all-inclusive asset management services.
