Techline Sports Lighting

Typical field lighting is a drain on operating costs. But new technologies are reducing the burden, not only of electricity costs but also of labor costs for field custodians and supervisors. CalSave offers schools, cities, parks and recreation departments, multi-sport complexes, and JPAs a new purchasing contract option that can cut operating costs from 50 to 75 percent.

Techline Sports Lighting is one of the nation’s leading providers of outdoor lighting for football stadiums, baseball fields, tennis courts, soccer fields, tracks, arenas, and golf courses.

It was awarded a piggybackable purchasing contract by the Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE) after a competitive solicitation for sealed bids coordinated in conjunction with the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies.

The contract provides discounts to schools and other government agencies even beyond standard Techline pricing which is already as much as 30 percent below the national average of other sports lighting providers.

In California, the contract is limited to the purchase of actual lighting and equipment, supplies and delivery of lighting equipment. For projects, exceeding $15,000 in labor costs, schools must conduct a separate bid for the public works aspect of installation by qualified contractors. Techline systems are designed for easy installation. The Techline Sports Lighting System (TSLS) incorporates progressive pre-wired modular components, to provide fast, easy, and cost-effective installation.

The company, based in Austin Texas but with California-based representatives, has a 70-year history with sports lighting and boasts a 10-year warranty with options for extended warranties of up to 30 years.

An example of how savings in operating costs can be achieved are found in Techline’s’ GEOSport LED fixture.  Options include 630 watt and 1000 watt fixtures that offer the flexibility needed to meet budgetary and performance guidelines in both retrofit and new installation applications

When doing research on lighting options, Techline representatives can answer questions about topics such as lens technologies, LED options, spill and glare, environmental regulations, foot-candle measurements, wind speed factors, soil conditions and lighting standards pertinent to specific sports.
