In 2016, Sunshine Foods worked with Ideal Energy to convert three locations in southern Minnesota to LED lighting, along with all the outdoor lighting at the Brandon, SD location. The stores’ lighting to be converted was interior T8 fluorescent lighting along with the outdoor metal halide parking lot lighting, wall packs, exterior building lighting, and a gas canopy in the Dodge Center location.

- Brighter, Improved Lighting with LED
Sunshine Foods had been looking for ways to improve the lighting and improve their bottom line. According to Vern Bennett of Sunshine Foods LED retrofits were a way to address both of those issues, “Our old fluorescent lighting was about ready to be replaced as it was getting pretty old, so when Ideal Energy gave us an option to convert to LED’s, save 44% on our lighting bills, and improve the light level, it only made sense to make the switch.”
Vern went on, “The LED’s lights have really made the stores look nice and bright. Ideal Energy was very easy to work with. They took care of everything, all the way from managing the installation and recycling of the old lamps to submitting all of the rebate incentives for us. We are very happy with the results; in fact, we are currently working with them on our Milford, IA location.”
