NHL Venue Features LED Lighting System

July 22, 2014 By Karen Henry

RBC-Center-Energy-ManagePNC Arena—home to the Carolina Hurricanes—will unveil a new Show-Light Green LED system at its preseason opener on September 21. PNC Arena is the first US National Hockey League arena to feature LED lighting. The Centennial Authority has partnered with Musco Lighting to install the system.

The lighting system will feature optically enhanced fixtures, which will reduce glare and improve playability for the athletes.

The increase in lighting performance at PNC Arena will be matched by a significant reduction in energy consumption and operating costs. Musco has retrofitted several major college indoor arenas with LED systems, reducing energy consumption at those venues by an average of 70 percent.

Earlier this year, Musco provided an LED lighting system for the East Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The bridge now employs more than 51,500 high-performance LEDs. Musco has also installed LEDs at the White House and at LakePoint Sporting Community in Emerson, Ga.
