With the existing lights at All City Stadium failing to achieve necessary light levels, consuming excessive amounts of energy, and maintenance becoming increasingly difficult, Denver Public Schools (DPS) moved ahead with a new LED system, as well as providing lighting at their second district-wide stadium at the Evie Dennis Campus. In addition to improving light levels and uniformity at All City Stadium, it was essential that the new lighting align with the City of Denver’s energy efficiency initiative and Denver Public Schools’ sustainability goals, which minimize spill and glare, and save DPS money in the long-term. After exploring a wide range of options, but relying on past successes, the district found that Musco’s Total Light Control—TLC for LED® technology was the best solution to meet all of its goals.
- Student-athletes and spectators at both stadiums enjoy better visibility with the new systems achieving
50 footcandles across the fields, delivered with much better uniformity.
- DPS will realize significant long-term savings and align with the city’s energy initiative as a result of the 75 percent reduction in energy consumption at both facilities compared to the previous lighting.
- Residents and drivers near both stadiums won’t be affected by spill or glare due to the systems’ patented visoring around the TLC for LED fixtures, achieving exceptional light control and cut-off.
- The district won’t have to pay maintenance costs at either stadium through the year 2045 with Musco’s 25-year warranty that covers every part of the system and all labor.
- DPS has found a high-quality, energy efficient, cost-effective lighting solution for other stadiums throughout the city when it’s time for new lighting or LED retrofits.
In addition to these two stadiums, Denver Public Schools has also provided high-quality, energy efficient, cost-effective lighting solutions for numerous school-based fields throughout the district (Montbello HS, Northfield HS, Bruce Randolph HS, North HS, West HS, John F. Kennedy HS, Thomas Jefferson HS, and George Washington HS), and will be converting the remaining HID systems in the district over the coming years.
