Portfolio | Tenino School District LED Stadium Lighting

Simply illuminating

Project Overview

New LED stadium lighting increases light output and distribution on the field, lowers maintenance needs, and reduces energy consumption by more than 50%.

Services Performed
  • Tenino, WA

When Tenino School District sought to install a new lighting system in Beaver Stadium, the home turf of the high school football, soccer, and track teams, they were having disruptive outages, costly energy efficiency issues, and labor-intensive maintenance problems with the existing metal halide system. They brought in UMC to develop, design and help secure funding for a new LED lighting system. We helped them win 75% funding for the project through the TransAlta Weatherization Grant.

Working with the Department of Enterprise Services and Northwest Edison (through the state of Washington’s ESPC program), the metal halide fixtures were replaced with MaxLite StaxMax LED Flood Lights which offer 75,000-hour lumen maintenance, light output, and efficiency. In addition to lowering maintenance and reducing energy consumption by more than 50%, the new lighting increased the light output and distribution on the field. With the field recently converted from grass to black turf, the improved illumination adds an attractive, high-tech look to the field for the school and the community. Better lighting and no mud—score for Tenino School District.
