Memorial Stadium in Bakersfield, California, was the first structure completed when Bakersfield College was built in the mid-1950s. Ever since, the stadium has served as a historic landmark and primary location for school and community events. After years of using a lighting system that failed to produce the desired light levels on the football field and track, school leaders determined that a new and cost-effective solution was necessary for enhancing the game day atmosphere. A new system would need to include superior light control capable of improving visibility without creating glare and spill light to help Memorial Stadium satisfy requirements for hosting higher-level competitions.
After learning of Musco’s superior light control and comprehensive warranty, Bakersfield opted for a Total Light Control – TLC for LED™ retrofit. Musco’s patented visoring technology ensures glare and spill light won’t affect homes surrounding the facility. The system’s custom optics and factory-aiming capability help achieve optimal light levels that satisfy requirements for the school to host state football championships, while the 10-year warranty guarantees Bakersfield won’t pay any maintenance costs through the year 2030.
