Indirect Fluorescent BEST Lights Save Tennis Club 49%

Our indirect fluorescent lights gave the same light levels using 1/2 the electricity at Findlay YMCA Tennis Center.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you are comparing Metal Halide fixtures to fluorescent. Most of the existing Metal Halide fixtures on Unistrut are very inefficient so the light levels are only from 30 to 50 foot candles and these lower light levels are easy to achieve with fluorescent. It's when you want the 80 to 120 foot candle level our MH-XL-HPP becomes more efficient because it has a higher lumen PUNCH to get the light back down to the floor.
Either way BEST Lights has the answer for energy savings in all types of facilities. Check out our other blogs or for additional case studies go to

Force Indoor Sports purchased the
Rocky River Tennis Club. Even though the ceiling is in bad shape, we were able to remove 68 -1000 watt fixtures and replace them
with 52 - of our 775 watt MH-XL-HPP. That's a 40% energy savings with a 20% increase in light levels. We will be re-insulating the ceiling with our other company CBR Insulation . I can guarantee another 30% increase in light levels with our white reflective facing on our insulation system and a 70% reduction in heating cost. For additional information call 1-800-545-2928 or click on
