The National Restaurant Association has teamed up with North American LED, an energy-efficient lighting products supplier, to offer light emitting diode, or LED lighting solutions, to the restaurant industry at discounted prices.

"Through our Conserve Sustainability Education Program, the association has been working diligently to help restaurateurs better understand the financial and environmental advantages of implemented good practices. By working with North American LED, we are moving one step closer toward helping restaurateurs be more energy efficient in a cost-effective way," said David Matthews, executive vice president, Innovation & Membership Advancement, NRA.

Lamon Elrod, president and CEO of North American LED, adds that by installing LED lighting at restaurants, operators can save between 50 percent and 75 percent in annual energy costs for lighting while reducing emissions from power plants.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program, lighting accounts for 13 percent of an average full-service restaurant's energy bill. Switching out 10 old incandescent bulbs for LEDs can save more than $400 a year.
