  • SC2 on Little League complex. Slide helps to illustrate problems of field to field glare. Next slide sets up dramatic contrast on similar size complex with LSG.
  • Light control is also critical for players and neighbors Spill light = wasted energy Musco redirects the wasted spill light Review evolution showing areas of glare and advancements in control Light-Structure Green improves spill &amp; glare over the previously most advanced technology (TLC) by 50% Requires fewer fixtures to get the same amount of light on the field
  • Sports lighting is unique in that you have to project light over a long distance, which makes it inherently inefficient Multiple considerations: players, spectators, neighbors Photometric reflector design among manufacturers makes the difference What you / your customer is buying is light on the field Musco’s technology has developed to be the most efficient in the sport lighting market place Review improvements
