First Commercially LED lit building Opens in USA
Marvel Food has opened its new store in Auburn , Washington State. Opened in June 2009 this is the first commercial new build to be fitted exclusively with LEDâ€™s. The 16,000 sq.ft deli uses LED lighting for both internal and external illumination.

Washington State has an energy code which determined that the project needed to come in at 27KW, by using LEDâ€™s the project has come in at under 9KWâ€¦
