Quincy, MA, December 22, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Prism Energy Services, working with LaMar Lighting, upgraded the Quincy Youth Hockey (QYH) Arena to more energy efficient and cost-effective LED lighting. QYH’s facilities manager sought to improve the lighting quality throughout the arena, especially over the main ice. The arena was previously equipped with a mix of T12 and T8 fixtures, and T5 high bays over the main ice. Prism Energy Services conducted a site evaluation, examining over 200 interior and exterior lighting fixtures and identified cost-effective lighting solutions for the entire facility.
Over the main ice, LaMar Lighting retrofitted HBL3 LED high bay luminaires, which are well-suited for cool-to-cold environments. Constructed of a fully enclosed, heavy-duty extruded aluminum chassis, the HBL3 LEDs have superior thermal control and durability and are operable in temperatures as low as -30°, at 227V. They deliver almost 17,000 lumens, consume only 152W, and are half the width of the previous luminaries, adding a modern, sleek look to the arena. By comparison, the previous luminaires consumed 702W per fixture.
Prism Energy Services helped Quincy Youth Hockey receive over $21,000 in utility incentives from National Grid. The arena is expected to reduce its energy consumption by over 140,000 kWh and save $11,000 on its energy bills every year. The company is expected to have an ROI of 59% after it becomes cash flow positive in only 1.5 years.
