When It Comes To Field Lighting, It’s Important To Ask The Correct Questions From The Start

Field lighting starts with asking the right questions: How much light is enough? Is LED right for your field? How can costs be kept down and neighbors remain happy? There are many factors to consider when you begin planning:

Community/Neighbors

Depending upon the location of your field, neighbors or businesses may have some worry about light on their properties. The city may have ordinances regulating the amount of light/glare allowed (near highways and roadways). Zoning codes will need to be followed. 

Field Layout / Accessibility

Making sure there is enough room for lighting poles is important and easy accessibility for equipment, installation, and maintenance.  Most systems require a 50′ ,75’ or 100’ set back for equipment. Having electricity available on your fields to power is also important. 

Costs

Example: “A high school football field can be lighted for approximately $200,000. This includes lighting levels of 30 footcandles and assumes that the power source is adequate and within 100 feet of one of the four poles.”

Partnerships, donors, sponsors can be built to help keep costs down and build relationships with those in your community. When planning your field lighting make sure to budget the costs of repairs (replacing bulbs which require the use of a bucket truck), light operators, and electricity.
