In June, you may have noticed our Arena was closed and the ice surface was removed. This shut down time was used to make facility improvements for the benefit of all skaters and $60, 000 was invested into lighting!
- 21 original metal halide lights were replaced with 52 new energy efficient LED lights
- This $60,000 investment has enhanced light distribution across the ice surface to meet current safety standards
A few facts about the new lighting:
- A metal halide light can take up to 15 minutes to warm up to full brightness whereas a LED light is instant
- Dimming capabilities are expected to help reduce energy costs.
- A LED bulb lasts 85,000 more hours than a metal halide bulb.
