On September 11, 2016, the New Orleans Saints kicked off their season against the Oakland Raiders under Musco’s LED lighting solution at the iconic Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The new system is part of a series of renovations with partner, Siemens Corporation, to further enhance the spectator experience and reduce energy consumption.
Since opening its doors in 1975, the Superdome has hosted numerous events from seven Super Bowls to five NCAA men’s basketball Final Fours.
The installation of the new lighting system provides many benefits to the Superdome:
With the 82 percent reduction in energy consumption, combined with Musco’s unmatched parts and labor warranty, operating costs have been significantly reduced compared to the prior lighting equipment.
