Ameristar Casino Wins Big With LED Lighting Installation


Entrance is Illuminated by Post Top Lights and Marquis Bulbs from Light Emitting Designs

Barrington, ILL—When guests approach the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in St. Charles, MO their bright welcome is also energy efficient, thanks to a recent installation of LED bulbs from Light Emitting Designs, Thousands of small bulbs span truss angles and encircle the perimeter of the building, while post top lights line the roadway entry.

The lights are a hallmark of the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa, welcoming guests around the clock. “It’s important for the outside of an entertainment venue like Ameristar to reflect the sizzle and excitement going on inside,” says Ray Voigt, from Martin Electrical Sales in St. Louis. “It’s equally important to find energy saving solutions that also save money.”

The installation included more than 6,000 S14 LED lamps, along with over 60 Post Top Lights. Although the initial cost per LED bulb is greater than for the bulb it replaces, “When you consider that the expected life of an LED bulb is 35-50,000 hours, bulb replacement labor shrinks dramatically,” said Tim Taylor, Light Emitting Design’s CEO. “In addition, since a typical 150 watt incandescent bulb can be replaced by a 35 watt LED bulb, the energy savings really begin to add up.”

“The switch to LED lamps aligns perfectly with Ameristar’s “More Green” initiative,” said Jim Franke, Senior Vice President and General Manager. “Throughout our company, we’re actively working to reduce environmental impacts while enhancing our guest and team member experiences.”

The S14 lamps are available in Soft White and Daylight, 35 Watt, and assorted colors, and boast up to 50,000 hour lamp life. A 2W bulb replaces 11W incandescent for at least five times the energy savings. The Post Top Series lamps are available in Soft White and Daylight replaces the 175W with 35W, and include a three year warranty and up to 35,000 hour lamp life.
