Cree Helps Denny’s Flip the LED Light Switch

Jan 14, 2011 Denny’s Corporation, America’s largest full-service family restaurant chain, has chosen energy-efficient LED lights from Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) as the preferred lighting standard for all its new and remodeled stores across the United States. Cree’s LR6™ six-inch downlights are being specified in various applications, including dining areas and restrooms in all newly constructed and converted facilities.

Pete LaBarre, a Denny’s franchisee in Colorado Springs, Colo., is already seeing extensive savings since converting to LED lighting. LaBarre has installed more than 400 Cree LR6 downlights in the dining rooms of his five restaurants, a move that has saved him around $15,500 per year in energy costs alone. Impressed with the energy and maintenance savings from installing LR6 downlights in his dining rooms, LaBarre has decided to use the six-inch LED downlights in a variety of other applications. Currently he has replaced 500 fluorescent bulbs and tubes with 200 Cree LR6 fixtures, illuminating the perimeter of each restaurant.
