Maintaining a Happy Family Environment Ice skating is a favorite pastime for many families. The cold indoor arenas seem warm after a few laps around the smooth icy rinks. At Burbank Ice Arena, families gather for quality fun. Kids and adults learn to skate, building their confidence on the ice. Ed Peduto, the General Manager is focused on maintaining a safe and happy environment for patrons of Burbank Ice Arena. Big Shine LED lighting is playing a part in keeping that commitment. The 2017 NEISMA Tradeshow created an opportunity for Mr. Peduto to be introduced to Big Shine Energy. Expressing his concerns, we learned that his arena was currently housing T12 and T5 fluorescent tubes. Instead of being able to focus on preparing and maintaining the ice, he was spending a considerable amount of time and overhead on maintaining the lights. Traditional arena lighting, such as fluorescent tubes, high-pressure sodium bulbs or metal halides can become more costly than convenient. Although it can play a complex role, lighting should be simple to operate and maintain. Our Big Shine Energy Consultant was prepared to provide a unique lighting solution that would offer brilliant results. “Before” shots of Burbank’s skate shop: “After” shots: Keeping It Simple Over the ice, we installed our Big Shine LED T5 tubes at a 5000k color temperature. This gave a bright, clean look to the rink. The flicker-free light is also much more comfortable for skaters. Over the bleachers, the Arcelia 40W fixture at a 5500k color
Big Shine Energy had the privilege to retro-fit Pole Position Raceway’s lighting in Long Island NY. This facility which is approximately 75,000-sq feet, has one of the most exciting race tracks that Long Island has to offer. One Hundred and eighty T5 fluorescent fixtures were replaced with our Satellite HD LEDs. The light is now brighter and the savings are unbeatable. Our Satellite HD fixtures reach an astonishing 130 lumens per watt providing cleaner brighter and more efficient lighting. By retrofitting their lights to Big Shine LED’s, Pole Position is now able to save $26,614.13 a year reducing 55,736 KW per year. Big Shine Energy was able to achieve Pole Position’s ultimate goal of reducing their energy costs while also reducing their carbon footprint.
