For A Better Bottom Line, A Smart Place to Start Is On the Roof, With Prismatic Skylights from Sunoptics

In the retail environment, Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights serve a dual purpose. As with any business application, daylighting helps control operating costs by reducing electricity use—especially during peak electric demand hours. Perhaps even more important to retailers, it actually drives sales!

A study on Skylights and Retails Sales found that skylights “positively and significantly increased sales.” In another study from the California Energy Commission of a retail chain of over 100 stores, 2/3 with skylights, the average sales in the daylighted stores was 40% higher than sales in the non-skylighted stores.

A follow-up study indicated that the value of the increased sales in the daylighted stores is a minimum of 19 times more than the value of energy saved.

Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights have been used by a multitude of major retailers for their daylighting initiatives. In fact, for over 15 years, WAL-MART, the world’s largest retail daylighting user, has used Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights to daylight their stores throughout the world. More than 400,000 Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights have been installed in some approximately 2,000 (and counting) WAL-MART stores worldwide. Today, Sunoptics Signature Series Skylights is the sole specified product for all Wal-Mart stores. Come experience the Sunoptics difference and maximize your retail daylighting opportunity through our high-performance prismatic skylights.
