The ChallengeKingpin's Alley Family Fun Center is a premier destination for bowling and family fun in the South Glens Falls area. Preserving that reputation as a high quality entertainment center has required a significant investment of time and money over the years on maintaining an outdated lighting system. The low color temperature and light quality of the existing fluorescent lights was diminishing the lively, inviting atmosphere that Kingpin’s Alley was looking to create. In addition the exterior lighting was mismatched and underlit due to the prohibitive costs of renting a lift to replace the old lamps.
The SolutionIn order to maximize energy savings and deliver the highest quality light, BlueRock recommended a full LED lighting upgrade. 530 existing T8 32 Watt fluorescent tubes were replaced with 18 Watt ballast-friendly LED tubes. Additionally all of the remaining interior and exterior lamps and fixtures were upgraded to LED.
The ResultsThe significant reduction in wattage on the T8 tubes alone has produced large drops on both the demand and the supply side of Kingpin's electric bill (see above). Utilizing 5000K color temperature lamps creates a daylight quality, helping to best highlight the rich colors and overall appearance within the facility. On the exterior, the LED fixtures have a lifespan of 25 years, significantly reducing maintenance costs while simultaneously increasing the level of safety by providing patrons with consistent, brightly lit exterior areas during evening hours.
You definitely notice the difference.
We couldn't be happier with the results.
