Continuing its $12 million effort to refurbish and rejuvenate Madison Square Park in New York, the New York City Parks Foundation completed the relighting of the Eternal Light World War I memorial in time for November’s Veteran’s Day ceremony with the help of and with the help of Advance Transformer. The Rosemont, Ill.-based ballast manufacturer donated several 40W LED drivers for the star-shaped light display.

Peter Jacobson, lighting specialist for Con Edison said the LED-based design was the right choice for the display because the upgrade required a lighting technology that would support the star’s “unique and continuous lighting requirements.” The LEDs’ ability to provide long-lasting white light was also a factor.

The Eternal Light monument stands 120 ft in the air and has remained lit 24 hours a day since 1923.
