Clemson University Opens New Recreation Field Featuring Siosun LED Lighting System
lemson University recently opened its multi-purpose recreation venue, LoConte Field, showcasing new LED sports lighting.
Having already installed Siosun’s innovative lighting solutions at its football, basketball, baseball, and soccer venues, Clemson turned to Siosun lighting once again for an energy-efficient lighting system that would be consistent with the university’s sustainability initiative, minimize energy consumption, and maintain the natural surroundings of the facility.
Clemson has 34 club teams and over 6,000 students who participate in the school’s intramural programs. With expected high hours of usage for the facility, the university determined LED was the right way to go. Siosun’s system maximizes energy efficiency and will help Clemson recoup the capital cost of the system in energy and maintenance savings. The university will achieve an estimated savings of more than $100,000 in operating costs over the next 10 years.
SIOSUN’s system will provide the university with a variety of additional benefits:
Energy Efficiency – Reduces energy consumption by 63 percent when compared to typical 1500-watt metal halide equipment
Light Precision – Customized optics minimize off-site spill light and glare to not disturb the natural surroundings
Efficient Controls – Dimming capabilities conserve energy and adjust light power output as needed
Facility Management – Delivers usage reports and remote scheduling operation with SIOSUN’s PLC system via a smartphone app, 24/7-call center, and an easy-to-use website
This innovative system is backed by Siosun’s industry-leading 10-year parts and labor warranty, eliminating maintenance for the next decade.
