Field Lighting Dilemma: Wood Poles
Many organizations are in this situation. However, it’s important to make an educated decision when accepting a donation of wood poles or purchasing a new system. Before assuming wood poles are the only feasible option, it’s important to learn about the long-term costs and dangers associated with wood poles as well as the benefits and long-term cost savings of other types of poles. Remember, if your organization decides to install field lighting, it becomes your responsibility to the players to provide quality, consistent lighting for their safety and confidence on the field.
