Coupled with this tool is a process where energy staff interact with the field personnel in identifying opportunities to reduce energy working together to eliminate waste. Macy’s is also a leader in the implementation and use of LED technology for accent lighting replacing over one million 1M PAR lamps over the last 3 years for a 73% reduction in the energy used in this lamp.
