American Eagle Achieves LEED with GE LED Lighting Fixtures

American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) was in the process of building a new distribution center. The AEO facility management team decided to look at alternate options for lighting layout that could provide energy and maintenance savings. AEO would need a full-time maintenance employee just to replace burned-out fluorescent tubes.
GE Lighting was called upon to provide consultation on LED lighting for its cost savings and maintenance benefits as well as improved light output and vertical foot-candles on racks in aisles. The facility management team reviewed other areas—inside the offices and warehouse space, as well as the exterior of the facility—to identify ways LEDs could help them achieve LEED certification.
