Applebee’s Goes Green in Style With LED’s

     Applebee’s recently announced a partnership with Lighting Science Group Corporation to replace over 3,000 incandescent and halogen bulbs with LED’s, resulting in an 88% reduction in their lighting energy.  This 88% should equate to about 820 saved kilowatts per year with their new, stylish LED’s.  With the initial cost of the retrofit (minus utility rebates due to Energy-Star certification and a new tax deduction for the company), Applebee’s has estimated that the lights will have paid for themselves in just over 7 months.   The images below are from two of the newly rennovated Applebee’s locations in New York City; one on 42nd Street and  another on Broadway (credited to eetweb.com).
