The Total Package
Total Tennis really is the total package. They’re known as the Northeast’s only year round tennis camp, with more than 25 courts and 49 guest rooms. Surrounded by expansive scenic views of the Catskill Mountains, Total Tennis is a valuable gem to New Yorkers and tennis players everywhere. Not only can Total Tennis Director, Edward Fondiller, boast about the facility’s sound reputation, he has quite a few environmentally friendly innovations to highlight as well.
Among many of Total Tennis’ dynamic initiatives, they’ve also instituted a recycling and composting system, organic farming and a solar field that produces 35% of their overall electricity. We were certainly excited to start working with Mr. Fondiller on adding another environmentally friendly initiative to their tennis courts.
LED Lighting Made Easy
Lighting conversions can often seem like an overwhelming process. We strive to make every project as seamless as possible. Our Turnkey Solution allowed us to ensure Mr. Fondiller’s concerns for the lighting quality were addressed. The metal halide fixtures were flickering and the overall lighting was lacking uniformity. After viewing our lighting at the Danbury Sports Dome, Mr. Fondiller was ready to begin the process of converting to LED lighting.
Our energy consultant suggested replacing the 51 MH fixtures with our Big Shine LED TK1 high bays in 300W. This would give a clean look to the courts and provide next to natural lighting.
The Total Package: Signed, Sealed, Delivered
The facility will receive an ROI of 2.4 years, saving 106,080 kWh per year. Brand new lighting didn’t have to come at a high cost either. As part of our Turnkey Solution, our consultant worked together with Total Tennis’ energy provider, Central Hudson, securing $10,200 in rebates to help fund the project.
Total Tennis’ efforts in going green didn’t go unnoticed by Big Shine Energy. We proudly honored Total Tennis with our “green” certificate as part of our ongoing campaign of Approaching Zero Carbon Emissions. We are proud to partner up with Total Tennis in lighting the way to a brighter future.
