Gas Station & Convenience Store Division



Regardless of what part of the country you are in, you are sure to find a gas station near you. With so many consumers, gas stations and convenience stores are always looking for the competitive advantage against their competitors. Operating on extremely tight profit margins, gas stations depend highly on volume-based sales.

Lighting, when inefficient, can represent over 30% of a gas station electricity bill. GLL can help you cut that expense by half, while improving lighting levels. Better lighting will make a gas station stand out in the crowd and attract more customers, generating more revenue. What’s not to love?


The most common type of lighting technology utilized on gas stations is Metal Halide, a High Intensity Discharge (H.I.D.) System. Metal Halide provides high lumen output, but it has a very high lumen depreciation rate. That means that after 20,000 hours (or 4 and a half years at 12 hours per day), the Metal Halide lamp will lose 40% of its brightness – and it will turn yellow, pink or green. Other shortfalls of H.I.D. Systems are a lot of glare, a lot of flicker and delayed restrike – creating an unsafe environment.

LED lighting, on the other hand, will only lose 5% of its brightness over the same period of time, has no glare nor flicker and it has instant restrike. And that’s before we start talking about energy consumption.
