And the state-of-the-art LED lighting system has not only reduced our electrical use, it has also improved the overall park lighting dramatically.

Named after the city of Monrovia’s first African-American police officer, Julian Fisher Park has been a popular community gathering spot since it was first dedicated in 1981. As part of a major renovation project, city leaders determined that new sports lighting was needed for the park’s three basketball courts, which were being re-surfaced.
They chose to partner with Musco and have its Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ system installed at the park’s courts. Nestled tightly in a residential neighborhood, the park needed a lighting system that would provide high-quality, uniform lighting to the courts without glare or light spill impacting the nearby homes at night. The city also needed a solution that was energy efficient in order to keep operating costs down. TLC for LED delivered. Key benefits included:
- Total Light Control – the custom optics and patented glare control technology virtually eliminates glare and spill from impacting homes directly across the street to the east, north, and northeast of the park.
- Customized Design – Musco’s experienced engineers and project planners created a two-pole system design with TLC for LED fixtures that met the specific lighting needs at the park.
- System Solution – the Light-Structure System™ solution is complete from foundation to poletop, with lighting, structural, and electrical components designed to work together for long-term reliability.
- Energy Efficient – with the new LED lighting in place, energy consumption at the park will be reduced by 51 percent compared to typical metal halide equipment.
Additionally, with Musco’s long-term warranty covering parts and labor, the city of Monrovia won’t have to worry about handling maintenance to the lights, or paying for it, for 25 years.
