Houston Astros set to install Musco LED lighting system

When MLB’s Houston Astros take the field on April 11 against the Kansas City Royals at Minute Maid Park, it will be under Musco’s SportsCluster Green LED system. As part of continued upgrades to Minute Maid Park, the new lighting system will provide unprecedented levels of energy efficiency and enhance the spectator experience at the ballpark.

The new system, which replaces the original metal halide lighting equipment that was installed when the 40,000-seat stadium opened in 2000, will consume less energy, require less maintenance and offer special effects to enhance the ballpark’s entertainment experience. That’s why the Astros looked to Musco for a customized solution.

“We are continuously looking for ways to improve the stadium experience for both our fans and our players,” said Astros president of business operations Reid Ryan. “The new LED lighting system will help us provide a top-of-the-line experience while increasing our energy efficiency all year long. We look forward to seeing the field of Minute Maid Park under new lights in 2016.”

Musco’s lighting solution will provide a variety of benefits that will help conserve energy, and improve the experience for spectators, athletes, and television broadcasts.

Energy consumption will be cut by 52%, enough to power 380 Texas homes for each hour of use; glare is reduced thanks to specially designed optics, enabling players to see the complete trajectory of the ball; a stage-like atmosphere will be created for fans; and maintenance will be effectively eliminated, thanks to Musco’s long-term parts and labor warranty.

“We’ve been helping customers for four decades provide energy-efficient solutions that improve the playing environment for athletes and fans,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president of Musco Lighting. “The new system will not only improve the Astros’ energy efficiency, but will bring a new level of entertainment with special effects and our patented optics.”

Minute Maid Park will become the second MLB venue to install Musco’s innovative LED solution and joins an extensive list of premier facilities that feature a customized Musco LED lighting system. That list includes the Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium, the San Antonio Spurs’ AT&T Center, and Arsenal Football Club’s Emirates Stadium.
