The Essentials Value Series by Flex Lighting Solutions is an incredible improvement over our old lighting system. The electrical savings have already been seen and we expect to see even further savings during the off season when we have the capability to turn the lights on and off at our leisure”

West Vancouver Ice Arena
West Vancouver, Canada
City of West Vancouver
The West Vancouver Ice Arena is a 22,100 square feet facility that operates year-round, hosting a variety of activities, including large events such as fundraisers, exhibitions and trade shows during the Spring/Summer, and hockey/skating parties, games and competitions during Fall/Winter.
The existing installation included a total of 40 400W Metal Halide lamps. The West Vancouver Ice Arena was poorly lit with a foot-candle reading below 25fc. The traditional light source had diminished to below acceptable standards. In addition, their energy consumption per year was 98,790 kwh. The City of West Vancouver was looking to replace their existing fixtures for an affordable LED solution that emphasized hydro savings and lighting quality.
Through an energy audit performed by CNJ Lighting Solutions and consideration of severa lLED lighting manufacturers, the City of West Vancouver selected Flex Lighting Solutions to retrofit its 22,100 sq. ft. ice arena. They replaced a total of 40 400W Metal Halide lamps one-for-one with 40 Essentials Value Series (6-Module Short).
With the change over to the Flex Lighting Solutions, the West Vancouver Ice Arena light levels increased from 25 footcandles to 50 footcandles. In addition, the new LED lighting upgrade is expected to significantly reduce their energy consumption to 33,486 kwh per year – a 66% increase in energy savings.
