The loads are significantly reduced due to the LED retrofit, it is a small grocery store (aprox. 40k square feet), and lighting contactors are way more expensive!
I have flipped around the code book and cannot find where it says anything about having to use lighting contactors. Anyone know of a place in the code book where it says I have to use a lighting contactor for lighting?-as stupid as that sounds! haha

Any input on this would be welcome
I would consult with the LED manufacture and find out what the inrush current will be on those LED's.
