TLC for LED® Retrofit Helps San Diego International Airport Create Safer Work Environment and Save Nearly $1 Million Over the Next Decade

  • Ground crews enjoy better visibility and a safer environment with increased light levels and custom optics which achieve a more uniform distribution of light.
  • SAN will realize a cost-of-ownership savings of nearly $1 million over 10 years, since energy consumption has been reduced by 76 percent compared to the previous lighting, Musco’s long-term parts and labor warranty will eliminate maintenance costs, and the lighting is part of an overarching sustainability initiative at the airport.
  • Installation of the new lighting was fast and streamlined as a result of the Musco’s complete system design with all parts of the system arriving together, a key benefit over non-system fixtures with individual parts and pieces arriving separately from different manufacturers.
  • Glare won’t impact pilots, air traffic controllers or ground crews, with the system’s patented visoring around the fixtures that minimizes glare coming from the light source.
  • San Diego’s beautiful harbor and hotel district directly south of SAN won’t be affected by spill light as a result of the system’s exceptional light control and cut-off, keeping light only in the areas for which it’s intended.
