Rebuilt from the ground up, the Highland Chevron store includes Cree LED luminaires under the exterior canopy and inside the convenience store.

The Cree LED fixtures will deliver energy savings estimated at nearly 70% over the old non-LED fixtures.

The Highland Chevron owner Bob Barman said the indoor and outdoor LED lighting allows the station to consume a third less energy than typical 24-hour c-stores and petroleum stations.

"Barman estimates that the new Cree luminaires should provide payback in 2.5 years and the financial savings just add-up after that. The Beaverton Chevron anticipates more than a decade of virtually maintenance-free operation," Barman said.

Twenty-four Cree 304 Series recessed canopy luminaires with petroleum symmetric optics replaced the original 368-watt metal halide fixtures on the fueling canopy.

Cree petroleum lighting vice president Andy Strickland said the company’s LED products offer the Beaverton Chevron early payback and financial savings over their lifetime.
