Rizzo Hockey Rink

Rizzo Hockey Rink Chooses Keystone for LED Lighting Upgrade

Challenge:

Rizzo Rink has been a hockey landmark in Philadelphia since it opened in 1979.  This rink serves as a place where children ages 5 – 13 can learn how to play ice hockey as well as learn life skills of competition, achievement, and teamwork.  

Kevin Fischer is a volunteer coach at Rizzo Rink and an Inside Sales Person at Joseph E. Biben Sales, an agency that represents Keystone Technologies. Kevin brought Jared Gross, Territory Sales Manager from Keystone Technologies, to look at the current lighting which had to be changed constantly and provided poor playing conditions.

Products Used:

The Solution from Keystone:

Jared saw that Rizzo Rink was using 400W High Pressure Sodium lamps. Kevin and Jared recommended using the Keystone KT-LED115HID-EX39-840-D, an LED Lamp designed to replace a 400W HID Lamp. These lamps were sold to Rizzo Rink by Colonial Electric Supply on Callowhill Street in Philadelphia. Installation was simple — the ballasts were removed and the lamps were installed to create brighter and safer playing conditions.

Result:

Children are now able to play hockey under excellent lighting conditions. This has increased safety and enjoyment at Rizzo Rink.

Keystone, Colonial Electric Supply, and Joseph E. Biben Sales, are always ready to help property owners reduce their energy costs and improve lighting.
