The new LED floodlights currently being installed at Camden Yards should bring the Baltimore Orioles significant savings on energy costs, the ball club said on its official Twitter account Friday.

“The new, energy-efficient system will reduce energy consumption by 54 percent,” said an Orioles tweet featuring three photos of maintenance crews installing the new light fixtures.

The installation of the nearly 800 LED lamps should be completed by early March, according to a fact sheet the team tweeted out Friday. This is the first re-lamping of the 25-year-old ballpark’s floodlights since 2011.

The new lighting scheme accords with Major League Baseball’s standards for play and broadcasting and should prove to be “visually and aesthetically pleasing” for both the players and fans, the fact sheet said.

The lamps, which can be controlled individually, are dimmable and have “instant on/off capabilities,” allowing for “programmed light show,” according to the fact sheet.
