The stadium LED light is part of the Raydeon™ Series LED lights, which are manufactured in New York , and range in size from 800W to 2500W. The LED lights developed by Ephesus Technologies uses 70% less energy and will maintain a consistent lumen light output for over 20 years. Designed on durability, the lights will endure extreme weather in any climate. The Raydeon™ Series LED qualifies for energy saving incentives. The most important features is that the Raydeon™ Series LED lights can be turned on/off instantly with dimming capabilities, unlike the Metal Halide bulbs that take 20-30 minutes to warm up and create a huge power surge causing a huge spike in electricity. “The Raydeon™ Series LED is the best solution for any outdoor lighting application,” says Joe Casper President of Ephesus Technologies. “Not only are they the most cost efficient lighting solution, but they designed to be dark sky compliant and allow areas to be lit more effectively. The dark sky features of our LED lights will eliminate light spillage into unwanted areas. This is an important consideration for nearby neighborhoods and roadways.”As part of the partnership with CNYRP, Ephesus Technologies will be implementing their Raydeon™ Series LED across the CNYRP facility. “We are excited to implement the state of the art Raydeon™ Series LED at CNYRP.
