When the decision was made to move ahead with a complete renovation of the football stadium at Porter High School, district leaders determined that a new LED lighting system would cap off the project. They needed a partner that could provide the best possible field lighting, avoid creating spill light or glare for nearby homes, and eliminate maintenance concerns and costs. Additionally, installation would have to be completed within a narrow timeframe at the end of the renovation. The school found that Musco and its Total Light Control—TLC for LED® system was the partner that could best achieve all of its goals.
- The school won’t have to deal with maintenance concerns or costs through the year 2044 with Musco’s long-term warranty covering every part of the system and all labor, and costs are further reduced by the 73 percent cut in energy consumption compared to the prior lighting.
- Players and spectators enjoy exceptional visibility created by increased on-field light levels, with an average of 30 footcandles across the field and much better uniformity as a result of the system’s custom optics designed around the LEDs.
- Homeowners living directly east of the football stadium aren’t bothered by spill or glare as a result of patented glare control and visoring around the TLC for LED fixtures.
- The school got the reliable, long-term lighting solution it needed from the retrofit system design which includes lighting, new structural cross arms, and electrical components engineered to work together.
