Shell & Turcas Retail Sales Investments Director Semih Genç said the following about the award: adına In the scope of our project, in order to reduce the electricity consumption in our own station network in the low carbon journey, we have replaced the traditional illuminations in the canopy and giant emblems with LED lighting that supports low electricity consumption. As Shell & Turcas, we have implemented the Project of Canopy Lighting (LUCI) with LED on our station network. Within the project, 160 lighting in our 2650 station was replaced by LED illuminations that provide a clear light source, and fluorescent lighting in 339 giant emblems were renewed with LED lighting. As a result of the changes in the canopy and giant emblems, total carbon emissions decreased by 1,200 tons and 2.601,5 MWh energy savings were achieved. With the transition to the use of LEDs with 100.000 clock life in the lighting, the rate of customers who visited our stations at night increased by 8. N
