Lights on a farmhouse light fixture in Ontario, Canada, are being replaced by LEDs.
In a major step toward lighting up Canada’s rural landscape, the country’s largest retail chain announced Tuesday it will install light fixtures that will provide farmers with a steady supply of electricity.
Wal-mart announced it is replacing some of its lighting with LEDs in a new project that it says will make it more efficient.
“In a way, the lighting will give us an extra boost,” said Wal- Mart spokeswoman Katie Schmitz.
“We’ve been thinking about this for a while.”
The project will be called Progress Lighting and it will cost $2 million.
It will be the first of its kind in Canada and is part of a multi-year effort to replace the countrys largest retail store with energy efficient lighting, Schmittz said.
Walmarts in the U.S. have been using LED lighting for years.
The lighting was first introduced in the early 1980s and Wal-Marts are currently replacing about 2,500 of their lights.
Some of those are on the U-M system, but some are installed on a standalone LED system.
The company has installed hundreds of thousands of these lights in over 400 stores in the country.
Wal-Mart said it is now replacing about 300,000 of its light fixtures with LED lights in the new project.
The new LED lighting will be installed by a company called Progress LED, which is owned by Wal-marts, Schmidts said.
Progress is an international lighting supplier that provides lighting for a wide range of industries.
“We know that the transition to LEDs is an exciting, and potentially significant step forward,” Wal- Marts chief operating officer David Gorman said in a statement.
“This new lighting project will provide a further boost to our existing LED lighting infrastructure and help us reduce the amount of time and energy needed to light our stores.”
The lighting will also provide more reliable lighting than existing LED lights and will provide improved efficiency compared to existing LED systems.

This farmhouse lighting installation is the first phase of a larger program to replace existing lights in Canada with LED lighting, Wal- marts said.
The project, which will cost approximately $2.4 million, will begin in 2020 and last three years.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, LED lighting is less expensive than traditional incandescent light bulbs.
Walmart said it has found that LED lighting reduces the number of times its lighting is needed in the home compared to incandescents.
Schmitz said the new lighting will allow Wal- stores to reduce the cost of lighting for the community.
“It’s not only about saving money; it’s also about saving time and money,” Schmitts said, adding that Wal–mart has installed LED lights for over 300,00 of its stores.
