Ohio University, Union College and the University of British
Columbia reduce energy use and improve lighting quality with LED
SYRACUSE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Three college sports and entertainment venues at Ohio University, Union
College and the University of British Columbia have seen the future of
lighting by joining the growing legion of North American higher
education institutions to make the switch to illuminate their arenas
with an innovative new LED lighting system from Ephesus
Ephesus LED lights reduce power consumption by an average of 70% and
maintain lighting quality with no maintenance. Whereas traditional
lighting requires frequent changing and experiences lighting output
degradation of 40% in just 18 months, Ephesus LED lights require little
to no maintenance and generate 90% light output for 10 years.
“We commend these three facilities for seeing the future by making the
move to our energy saving, maintenance-free and high-quality LED
lighting system,” explained Mike Lorenz, president of Ephesus Lighting.
“LED is the natural evolution of arena and stadium lighting as it
provides an optimal stage for events, players and fans.”
University Convocation Center at Ohio University in Athens, OH is a
13,080 seat multi-purpose arena that hosts basketball, volleyball and
wrestling. They replaced 155 metal halide and incandescent 1000 watt
lights with 52 Ephesus 600 Arena Lights. The reduction in energy
consumption was accompanied by increased light levels of 10% the court,
exceeding NCAA broadcast requirements.
Similarly, the 2,350 seat Frank
L. Messa Rink at Achilles Center at Union College in Schenectady, NY
replaced its metal halide system with 50 Ephesus 600 Arena Lights and 20
Ephesus 300 Arena Lights. The rink is the home ice for the Union College

The Ephesus lighting system installed at UBC
Thunderbird Arena at the University of British Columbia is a hybrid
system comprised of 46 Ephesus Arena 600 lights plus 41 remaining metal
halide fixtures. The Ephesus fixtures will provide 100 FC of lighting
for daily usage while the metal halide lights will supplement them for
major events. The system is projected to reduce power consumption by
over 70% at the 7,000 seat facility.
Ephesus manufactures the brightest LED on the market and is the only
arena-designed lighting solution that is certified under Design Light
Consortium’s (DLC) quality, performance and energy efficiency
requirements. The DLC certification enables facilities to receive energy
incentives from utility providers. Ephesus Lighting has created LED
