The retrofit aimed to replace old, outdated and inefficient fluorescent highbay fixtures and replace them with EcopowerLED EHBD series highbay fixtures.

A Better Way to Play - Genesis Centre - Calgary, Alberta

In 2017, EcopowerLED and provincial partners in Alberta, completed a LED retrofit solution for the Genesis Community Center indoor recreation facility in Calgary, Alberta. The retrofit aimed to replace old, outdated and inefficient fluorescent highbay fixtures and replace them with EcopowerLED EHBD series highbay fixtures.

LED lighting lasts upwards of 60,000 hours before needing to be replaced, compared to fluorescent lighting can last around 10,000 hours before needing to be replaced. An average CFL bulb would need to be replaced 6 times to equal the lifespan of one LED light bulb. Also, LED light bulbs are about 5 times more efficient than fluorescent lighting.

The space has really been transformed from bland to an illuminated, welcoming space where every detail is perfectly illuminated, improving visibility for sports and other community activities. The facility manager has received many compliments in regards to the upgraded lighting and how much of a difference it has made for all of the users of the facility. Not only does the new lighting make the area look cleaner and brighter but also makes the space a better and safer place to play, lowering operating costs significantly at the same time.

“You can really see the difference the lighting has made, we have had nothing but positive comments on the new look!”

Doug Taggart ~ Building Operations Manager
