Ottawa Arena Projects 70% Energy Savings with LEDs

July 15, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

LED energy manageEphesus Lighting has been selected to retrofit the 19,153-seat Canadian Tire Centre, home of Canada’s National Hockey League Ottawa Senators, with Ephesus LED lights.

Ephesus was selected after facility operators conducted an extensive side-by-side test with three other lighting companies offering LED systems.

Canadian Tire Centre will replace its metal halide system with the Arena 600 and Arena 300 lights and the Ephesus wireless control system. Despite reducing the number of fixtures by more than one-third, the Ephesus lighting system will increase light intensity and uniformity and yield a projected energy savings of more than 70 percent, says the company.

Ephesus LED arena-designed lighting system 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.

  1. Lighting could not have saved 70% of energy.
    Ice arenas spent most of their energy on supporting ice, not on lighting. Switch to LED could have saved 70% of electricity used for lighting.
