The home field for Duke University football, Wallace Wade Stadium, will be illuminated beginning in 2016 with high-performance energy-efficient LED stadium lights from Ephesus Lighting, Inc., the leader in providing LED lighting solutions for sports stadiums, fields and arenas and the Preferred Sports Lighting Partner of Duke University.
As part of a long-term initiative with Ephesus Lighting to upgrade the lighting at Duke University sports and recreation facilities, Wade Wallace Stadium will become the second sports field at Duke to choose the Ephesus Lighting high-performance LED solution. Last year, Williams Field at Jack Katz Stadium, the home turf for the Duke women’s field hockey team, became the first NCAA Division I outdoor facility to install LED lights from Ephesus Lighting.
“Sports and entertainment venue operators all across North America have come to understand that LED is the premier lighting solution and a great way to enhance the experience for fans and players and improve conditions for broadcast partners and the facility operations team,” said Mike Lorenz, President of Ephesus Lighting. “We look forward to continuing to provide Duke University sports and recreation facilities with state-of-the-art LED lighting solutions.”
The stadium joins the growing list of prominent professional, college and municipal sports stadiums and arenas choosing an LED lighting solution from Ephesus Lighting including; U.S. Bank Stadium, University of Phoenix Stadium, the Canadian Tire Centre, home ice of the Ottawa Senators and more.
The Ephesus Lighting LED solution being installed at Wallace Wade Stadium will provide more illumination than the previous system while requiring just 234,000 watts of energy –a 40% reduction in energy consumption. The system will be operated by the Ephesus wireless control system which will provide added flexibility for facility operators and enable unique light shows and instant on/off capabilities with the flick of a switch.
Ephesus Lighting has led the LED lighting explosion at sports and entertainment facilities across North America by engineering LED lighting solutions that provide a significant increase in illumination when compared to all other lighting systems. Ephesus’ LED lighting is brighter, and through its industry-leading glare-control system its fixtures shine more uniformly on the playing surface, creating a better stage for players and fans both in the stadium and those watching on high-definition television. Ephesus LED solutions are easy to install, maintenance-free for years and offer facilities the lowest total operating costs.
