November 10, 2015
ThinkLite LEDs were recently chosen to upgrade the court lights at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, NY. As the former site of 60 US Opens, this 120 year old club has always maintained the highest quality standards; especially when it came to court lighting. It was for this very same reason, that ThinkLite LEDs were chosen for the lighting upgrade.
ThinkLite solutions clearly provided the highest color rending index and most lumens per watt in the in the industry which translated into the best light quality with the least amount of energy.
Arizon Air Structures coordinated the entire project and replaced 96 1000W metal halide lamps across two domes with their proprietary indirect fixtures and 312W of ThinkLite LEDs. In the end, foot candle readings were increased by 15% and energy use was reduced by 70%.
ThinkLite was also able to help secure a $38,000 rebate, which reduced the payback on the entire project to just 1.6 years. With a 24 month finance plan, the project was actually cash flow positive from day one and will save 242,820 kWh per year.
As the leading supplier of LED court lights in the northeast, ThinkLite has more experience and more options than any other vendor.
