Minnesota Twins to Open Season Under New Lights

March 21, 2017
A new lighting and controls system from Eaton's Ephesus Lighting will cut energy consumption by up to 75%.

When baseball begins for the 2017 season at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, fans and players will see their field in a new light. Eaton Corp., Cleveland, said its Ephesus line of LED sports lighting luminaires and controls are now being installed there. The new lighting system will cut energy use by up to 75%.

The Twins will become one of five Major League Baseball (MLB) teams playing its home games under the Ephesus LED sports lighting solution this season, and more than 25 professional sports teams have adopted the company’s LED and controls technology in just the past few years, Eaton said.

“We look to continue providing our players with the best stage on which to play and enhancing the experience of seeing a game at Target Field for our guests,” said Gary Glawe, senior director of Ballpark Systems for the Minnesota Twins. “We compared three of the leading LED lighting options and the Ephesus solution proved to be the best fit for our needs.”

The system being installed at Target Field features Eaton’s Ephesus Stadium Pro fixtures to illuminate the playing field, plus color accent lighting under the perimeter of the seating area canopy. The system is available with 100% dimming capabilities, tunable light temperature and advanced control capabilities within each fixture.
