LED Sports Lighting Installed in Houston Astros’ Minute Maid Park

23 February 2016

Major League Baseball is set to return to the field in early April and when the Houston Astros take the field, they will have a set of new light emitting diode (LED) system upgraded to their Minute Maid ballpark.

The lighting system is part of Musco’s SportsCluster Green LED system and will become the second sports facility to install Musco’s LED system. Musco has also installed LED lighting for the Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium, the San Antonio Spurs’ AT&T Center, and Arsenal Football Club’s Emirates Stadium.

The LED system will replace the original metal halide lighting equipment originally installed in the 40,000 seat stadium. (Source: Musco)The LED system will replace the original metal halide lighting equipment originally installed in the 40,000 seat stadium. (Source: Musco)

The new system will replace the original metal halide lighting equipment that was installed when the 40,000-seat stadium opened in 2000. Musco says the LED system will require less energy to operate, require less maintenance and offer special effects to enhance the experience at the ballpark for patrons, athletes and even television broadcasters.

Musco says the lighting system will cut energy consumption by 52%, reduce glare for players to see the complete trajectory of the ball and create a stage-like atmosphere.
