Starfire Sports is an indoor and outdoor sports complex that holds 12 outdoor sports fields as well as two indoor soccer fields. Their indoor sports field not only introduces the local kids to soccer but also fields competitive adult leagues. Starfire is also the home of the Seattle Sounders' practice fields. While looking for a way to reduce their operating costs, they took advantage of an outreach by a local Allumia rep to discuss Efficiency-as-a-Service to upgrade lighting. To add complexity, their lights were hard-piped and hung 40 feet above the playing surface and only accessible by removing the entire field netting and bringing a lift in through one of the field's end goals, on plywood -- a maintenance nightmare.
Enter Allumia. With our Efficiency-as-a-Service program, Starfire Sports was able to upgrade to LED lighting at no upfront cost, while investing their own capital in the business they know best: sports! With the added lifetime of LED lighting and the maintenance provisions of EaaS, not only is Starfire Sports saving on their electrical bill, but the decrease in frequency of lamp replacement means less downtime for the maintenance team as well. Problem solved.
