Salt Lake City Bees install new LED lighting system

0

Minor League Baseball team the Salt Lake City Bees has begun the installation of a brand new LED lighting system at its home stadium, Smith’s Ballpark, as part of a move to help cut energy consumption and reduce maintenance.

The system, which is costing US$630,000, will introduce 168 new LED bulbs to replace the 342 obsolete metal halide lamp system used for the last 25 years. The new bulbs will reduce energy consumption by 65%, offer brighter illumination, minimized glare and noise, and need no time to warm up.

“Salt Lake City will see our beautiful baseball stadium in a whole new light” said Mayor Jackie Biskupski. “These upgrades not only save costs and reduce energy but provide an even greater sports experience for families and fans.”

“We’ll be able to brighten the field faster and more directionally, which will help reduce light pollution,” said Salt Lake Bees president Marc Amicone. “This new system even has special effects, so we can enhance the fan experience when celebrating home runs or when the Bees win.”

“We are grateful for the great partnership we have with Salt Lake City, which allows us to keep the ballpark a premier facility in Minor League Baseball and a vital part of our community,” he added.
