), recently supplied Light Emitting Diodes (LED) solutions to
Riddle Jewelry store. GE's LED lamps are energy efficient and
will also add glitter to Riddle's showrooms.
Riddle opened its first store in Webster, South Dakota, in 1959
and added many stores thereafter. Lighting plays a vital role at
Riddle's -- be it adding a subtle glitter to precious stones or
creating the setting of an engaging atmosphere.
Riddle changed halogen bulbs in 57 locations with General
Electric's LED lamps. The replacement is expected to save 20% to
25% annually in its store lighting costs. GE Lighting already has
long-standing business relationship with Riddle and the new deal
is an extension of this. Riddle has witnessed lighting energy
cost savings in the range of $100 and $150 a month in smaller
stores and from $175 to $225 in larger stores where it has
already used General Electric's lamps.
General Electric's new LED replacement lamps stay cooler than the
halogen bulbs and there has been a noticeable decrease in the
cooling demand on HVAC units in the store as well.
