Idemitsu to Shift Sign Board Lighting to LED
 

Tokyo, June 30, 2008 (Jiji Press) - Idemitsu Kosan Co. <5019> said Monday it will adopt light-emitting diodes in place of fluorescent lamps for store signs and price boards at all of its 4,800 gas stations in order to cut costs and carbon dioxide emissions.

Initially, the major oil distributor will make the change at 1,400 service stations by March 2009. The LED introduction at other gas stations will be finished in three to five years, company officials said. LEDs consume less power than fluorescent lamps.

Idemitsu estimates that the introduction of LEDs will reduce its annual CO2 emissions by 1,200 tons, while electricity and other costs are projected to decrease 1.6 billion yen in five years.

The company is also considering adopting LEDs for all lighting equipment used inside and outside of its gas stations.
