Rite-Hite Revolution® Fans Featured in APS Solar Pavilion at Chase Field

PHOENIX - Thanks in part to Rite-Hite, baseball fans entering Phoenix's Chase Field this summer have been greeted by something quite unexpected: a cool, shady breeze.

Rite-Hite Fans were among the leading-edge products used in the new solar shade project opened by the Arizona Public Service Co. (APS) at the stadium's west entrance just prior to the 2011 MLB All-Star Game. Four of Rite-Hite's 12-foot diameter HVLS (high volume, low speed) fans were installed in the APS Solar Pavilion as an additional, energy-efficient means to keep baseball fans cool. Built to provide the most air movement of any HVLS fan, Rite-Hite Fans can move air up to 85 feet from in all directions, making them energy-efficient and great for large-space building environments. Their unique blade design ensures consistent temperatures from ceiling to floor, eliminating any energy-robbing cold or hot zones.

The APS Solar Pavilion was built to help the utility inform customers about its renewable power, energy efficiency and energy-conservation programs, as well as providing much-needed sun block. The structure shades just over 17,000 square feet and features solar panels that generate up to 75 kilowatts of electricity.

The Solar Pavilion features an array of high tech products, and APS is testing electric-car charging stations and battery storage with the project. The Pavilion also includes a green energy classroom where fans can learn about renewable energy and conservation.

The Diamondbacks are considering adding more shade structures to the plaza next season.

Both the Revolution® and Revolution SP® series products come with a one-year Customer Satisfaction Money-Back Guarantee and a 10-year Structural Integrity Warranty.
