Memorial Stadium to Get LED Lights This Summer

Recommended Posts

Quote

Football stadium lighting has come a long way since rented, temporary lights attached to cranes peeked over the top of Memorial Stadium more than 30 years ago.

 

Historical footnote: The first night game at Memorial Stadium was the 1986 opener against Florida State. Permanent lighting wasn’t until 1999, and the first game under those new lights was against Iowa State on Oct. 9, 1999. After all those years, the lighting system is changing this fall, and LED is the new standard. Nebraska will join a handful of schools relying on this technology to put a better, brighter shine on the football action on the field.

 

The Memorial Stadium work is expected to be completed by late July.

 

...

 

The $1.75 million Memorial Stadium project will replace the existing field lights.

 

...

 

Musco said LED stadium lights, in general, should reduce energy consumption by as much as 70 percent. Ingram didn’t hazard an estimate on energy savings for Memorial Stadium over time because the stadium “is used so infrequently, with full lights maybe 10 times of the year.”

 

A news release from Musco on the Michigan State project estimated a $110,000 energy savings over the next decade.

 

The Memorial Stadium system will feature 22 new LED light fixtures on each of the eight poles around the stadium, plus a few additional lights to support the system.
