Today’s high schools have a constant need to balance quality facilities and educational experiences with ever-tightening budgets. This means they are often looking for ways to cut costs yet need to do so without sacrificing the quality of the educational services they provide. One area where costs can be cut while actually improving the experience of students and staff is in lighting sports fields and stadiums. High schools that make the switch to LED lighting will improve the visibility of their athletic facilities while cutting their energy costs substantially. Here are some of the advantages of LED lighting for high school stadiums that you could be enjoying by making this switch.
Longer Lasting Lighting Solutions Reduce Maintenance Costs
Spending time replacing lights uses up your maintenance team’s time, which adds to your maintenance expenses. Switching to LED reduces these costs and the time constraint, because it lasts much longer than high-pressure sodium stadium lighting that was commonly used in the past. In fact, many lights will last for several years without replacement, so your maintenance team spends less time replacing them.
Improved Illumination Makes Game Play More Enjoyable
LED lighting solutions for high school stadiums light stadiums more effectively. These lights render colors truer to natural sunlight, spread light more evenly over the playing surface, and increase overall visibility. If you opt for AEON LED Luminaires as your LED lighting solution, you will enjoy glare-free lighting, which makes game play safer for players and more enjoyable for fans. If games are televised, the illumination from LED lighting makes it easier for viewers at home to see the action.
LED Lighting Leads to Substantial Energy Savings
LED lighting technology creates more delivered lumens per watt than other stadium lighting solutions. For instance, a 520-Watt LED luminaire creates the same amount of lumens as a 1500-Watt HID bulb. This means switching to LED can save your school between 50 and 65 percent on energy costs, depending on the current type of lighting you have, all while actually improving the quality of the lighting in your stadium.
