Musco Sports Lighting is providing its Light-Structure Green LED system to the Seminole County Sports Complex in Sanford, FL.
The facility encompasses 15 fields. It is near the Orlando-Sanford International Airport and a residential neighborhood, so a premium is on direct light to avoid glare, spill or disruptive “skyglow” that could distract pilots, according to the press release.
The system is expected to save $1.114,000 during the next decade by cutting energy consumption by 64 percent compared to 1,500 Watt metal halide lights. The company says that the lights are highly reliable, come with a 10-year parts and labor warranty and are remotely controlled.
Last month, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported on significant energy savings at Petco Park. The venue has reduced water and energy used for lighting by 40 percent compared to a typical year, according to the paper.
