AUBURN — Jordan-Hare Stadium is about to get lit.

By new field lights.

The Auburn University board of trustees approved a proposal to replace the existing metal halide fixtures with LED fixtures at its meeting Friday morning.

The overall project is estimated to cost between $3.75 million and $4.25 million, according to the materials presented to the board. It will be financed by athletics department funds.

It is a necessary upgrade, as the existing light fixtures at Jordan-Hare Stadium "have exceeded their life expectancy and replacement bulbs are no longer being manufactured." The new LED fixtures "will also improve the level of illumination within the stadium for televised night games."

The project also involves replacing the 20 galvanized steel light poles around the stadium.

The lights will be the same as the ones at the Auburn Soccer Complex and Plainsman Park. Coach Butch Thompson described them as "far and away the best lighting I have ever seen at a baseball stadium."

LED lights are more durable and longer lasting than the old metal halide bulbs that are slowly being fazed out at every level of sports. They also consume less than half the energy, require less maintenance and do not need the same amount of time to power up.

"That's always our goal here at Auburn University, is to reduce our electric consumption," associate vice president for facilities Dan King said during his presentation.

 

"The scoreboard makes up for it, though, right?" one trustee joked.

These new lights will be capable of putting on flashing light shows similar to the one seen at the Green Bay Packers' Lambeau Field, but they do not have to be used that way. Auburn has not had any discussions about whether it plans to have any fixtures with color, such as the red ones recently installed at Georgia's Sanford Stadium and Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium.
