Qualite Sports Lighting’s Q-LED System™ is First LED to Light A California Rec & Park Sports Field !


   The Q-LED System by Qualite Sports Lighting was chosen to replace an old metal halide system at Solari Park in San Jose, CA.

   Qualite’s energy efficient Q-LED System was chosen to be the first LED retrofit project for any California Rec & Park field lighting project. Solari Park officials worked with Qualite Sports Lighting to find an energy efficient and budget-friendly solution to provide much needed lighting for their project. By using their existing poles, Qualite was able to replace the old metal halide fixtures with 22 – 1000w LED fixtures, increasing light levels and reducing energy and maintenance costs.

   Because Solari Park is located in an urban area of San Jose, light cut-off was a feature necessary to neighborhood acceptance. The Q-LED System is prewired and pre-aimed to strategically direct light onto the field, and away from surrounding neighborhoods. Mike Tonis, Qualite Sales Manager, states, “This project really highlights the suitability of LED for Rec & Park Fields. Solari Park is a perfect illustration of how Qualite’s Q-LED retrofit can be a perfect lighting choice for community budgets, both for energy efficiency and maintenance-free ownership.
