Netanya, Israel-based Metrolight , manufacturer of electronic high intensity discharge (EHID) lighting products, recently announced that its products were used in the upgrade of lighting systems at 90 BevMo! locations across the Western United States, providing the beverage retailer with almost $1 million in annual energy savings. Performed by West-Lite Supply Co.,Los Angeles, this series of upgrades was the largest electronic HID retrofit project in California in 2009.

To maximize savings for BevMo!, Metrolight replaced thousands of 250W magnetic HID fixtures with Metrolight’s SmartHID 150W EHID fixtures, allowing BevMo! to maintain required lighting levels throughout their stores, an integral piece of the chain’s inviting and entertaining shopping experience.
