Bethel School District needed to address a couple of issues at Art Crate High School Stadium: inefficient lighting and complaints from glare and light being spilled into the community. School officials turned to Musco for an innovative lighting solution that would help the district accomplish its energy efficiency initiative.This initiative was aided by incentives from the district’s energy provider to help offset the higher capital expense of the LED system. Musco installed its SportsCluster Green™ LED system on the existing concrete poles at the stadium that houses soccer, lacrosse and football. The system features custom optics built around the LED light source matched with Musco’s application expertise to offer precise light control and glare reduction, helping direct light onto the field and not into the neighborhood. Additionally, the lighting solution offers instant on/off/dimming capabilities that maximize energy efficiency, helping reducing energy consumption by 41 percent compared to the prior lights.
Maintenance is also eliminated for the next decade with a parts and labor warranty that guarantees light levels for the duration of the warranty. This includes Musco’s easy-to-use Control-Link® Controls and Monitoring system that will help the school schedule the lights via web-based software, mobile app and a 24/7 call center.
