The latest facility is the Seminole County Sports Complex in Sanford, Florida—a 15-baseball field facility that has installed Musco’s Light-Structure Green LED system. In addition to giving the field better visibility, the lighting will allow the sports complex to cut its energy consumption by 64% compared to typical lighting systems. It will save the facility more than $100,000 each year or about $1.1 million over the next decade, Musco says.

The LED lighting system also helps with maintenance costs by needing to replace traditional bulbs often. The lighting system will also provide a benefit to players and fans to help enjoy the experience of the facility more, Musco says.

One of the challenges of installing new lighting at the sports complex was the close proximity to the Orlando-Sanford International Airport as well as nearby residential neighborhoods. Musco’s lighting allows for direct light without creating glare, spill or disruptive skyglow for pilots, the company says.
