Looking at Boston Bruins, Celtics in new light

The TD Garden, home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics along with countless other events and shows, recently installed a new energy-efficient lighting solution featuring LEDs. SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions, or SLS, led the project from analysis of the old system, to design and installation of a new one that will save the arena energy and money.

The original interior lighting consisted of fluorescent T8 luminaires in the administrative and concourse areas, and 1000 W quartz and metal halide lamps inside the arena. While this design was considered state of the art in 1995 - when the facility was originally constructed - the rapid evolution of lighting technology and best practices reportedly prompted TD Garden to initiate an upgrade.

“Companies like TD Garden turn to SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions to customize a fully integrated solution with the latest lighting and controls technologies to reduce energy consumption, increase maintenance productivity and ultimately save money," said Todd Myers, CEO of SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions, a unit of Osram Sylvania . “The result is a new LED lighting and controls system that fully utilizes best practice and state-of-the-art technology."

Anticipated annual savings include:

  • 78% energy savings with LED house lights upgrade
  • 42%  energy savings in the management administrative area
  • The Madison Square Garden room, which is used for corporate functions and meetings, will see nearly 2,000 kWh of energy savings annually

"The new LED lighting and lighting controls help the TD Garden by providing better energy efficiency, operational cost reduction, consistent presentation and control, flexibility to address various tenant/client needs, and future opportunities to expand and evolve," Hugh Lombardi, senior vice president and general manager of TD Garden said in a statement.
