Spotlight Retail Group (SRG) is Australia’s largest privately-owned and operated family business and fosters two iconic Australian brands. Spotlight is Australia’s largest fabric, craft, party and home interiors superstore and Anaconda is Australia’s largest outdoor adventure and sports superstore.
In 2017, SRG turned its focus to sustainability and partnered with Cherry Energy Solutions for the rollout of LED lighting upgrades across 150 stores in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.
Over 66,000 LED lights were installed, a combination of custom-made LED tubes, panels, troffers, recessed downlights and high bays. In addition, Cherry’s lighting design experts engineered a custom strip lighting solution for optimum in-store product display. The LED lighting upgrade is estimated to save SRG over 7 million kWh per annum, equivalent to more than 8000 tonnes CO2, or taking more than 1,550 cars off the road.
To complement the LED lighting upgrades, SRG are moving to install solar across their stores. 198kW was installed on the roof at Spotlight and Anaconda Geelong, saving the stores $1.8 million over the next 25 years.
