What is the Cost to Buy Stadium Light? How much to run the stadium lights?

We may wonder the cost of stadium lights before and after buying. Before the purchase, we may wish to know how much and the best & lowest cost for stadium lamps; while after the installation, we will have the concern about the running cost of the lights, such as the maintenance and electricity cost. Indeed, the light themselves can be up to $75,000, while the running electricity bill is about $10 to $20 per hours if you are using LED. However, this is only the general picture. This value varies greatly according to the types of luminary, size of ball field, height of pole, the nature of the matches (whether it is for professional matches or recreational competitions).

How much electricity cost to light a standard football stadium?

The running cost of high school stadium lights is relatively lower than the professional field for Olympics and premier league. Since the electricity bill is much easier for calculation, we will solve this problem first. Take the most typical high school stadium as an example, since the lighting requirement is about 300 to 400 lux, it needs about 35,000W LED lamps to provide adequate illuminance for the turf and audience seats. If you use the metal halide lamps, the power needed will be 70,000W! It is because LED has better energy efficiency, so we need 70,000W MH to provide the same brightness of 35,000W LED.

Cost on stadium lighting

Since the average electricity cost for the US is approx. $0.12 KW/h; therefore, the running cost on stadium lighting is about 35000 * 0.12 / 1000 = $4.2 / hour. If they operate for 8 hours per day, and 15 days per month, the daily cost will be $33.6 and the monthly $504. Therefore, it is wise to have the metal halide replacement with LED stadium lights because we can immediately save $504 energy expenses per month!

As for the maintenance cost, it is negligible when comparing to electricity bill. It is because LED is a durable lamp for stadium because of its solid-state properties. The life-span is about 8 times higher than metal halide, HID or HPS lamps. The led stadium lamps can work for about 27 years under the above setting, and thus you can save tone of repair and replacement cost, with the fact that the installation cost can be very high. Despite the above advantages, will it be very expensive for buying the LED stadium lamps?

What is the cost of stadium lamps?

Apart from energy bill, many of us may wonder how much stadium lamps cost. For a typical high school stadium, the total cost is ranged from $40,000 to $100,000, which depends on the brand and origin of the LED lights.
