About the project
New construction or upgrade
LED Lighting Supply was contacted by Spartan Sports Park to upgrade its lighting to energy-efficient LEDs. The metal halide fixtures they had were very energy inefficient resulting in a significant energy expense. Additionally, the light level on the field for players and spectators was definitely in need of an upgrade. As a result of switching over to LED lighting, Spartan Sports Park was able to get the both of best worlds: An economical, energy-saving upgrade that reduced their energy bill from the lighting by 65% and improved light levels.
Our approach and lighting plan
Once Spartan Sports Park contacted us to light their baseball field, we started getting the information we needed for the lighting plan and for choosing the best fixture. They let us know the number of foot-candles they needed, their mounting heights, and the level of play. They also let us know the wattage of their current metal halides and any lighting restrictions. Spartan Sports Park had a 1000 Watt Metal Halide and needed 20 FC infield and 10 FC outfield. With all of this information in mind, we chose the MLLG-AG-LED-IMF-400-5-TR.
The upgrade from metal halides to LEDs increased Spartan Sports Park’s energy savings by 65% and extended the life of their fixtures up to 36 years. Because of their newly installed fixtures, this park and its players are able to play late into the night, safely just as if it was a day game.
