Musco Lighting And National Park Foundation Join With The National Park Service To Relight The Statue Of Liberty In The Wake Of Hurricane Sandy Damage

Statue of Liberty To Be Illuminated Tonight For the First Time Since Superstorm Sandy

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tonight, the Statue of Liberty will once again shine through the darkness of New York Harbor, providing a bright beacon of hope to storm ravaged residents of New York and New Jersey as the recovery from the massive damages inflicted by Hurricane Sandy continues.

Thanks to a generous donation of equipment and services by Musco Lighting to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks, the Statue will be re-lit through temporary measures that will remain in place until a full assessment of the extent of the damage to the lighting system is complete and a permanent fix implemented.

"For 125 years the Statue of Liberty has been one of the world's most enduring symbols of our nation and this great city," said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  "While we work to do everything necessary to re-open the Statue and every other national park damaged by the hurricane, we are grateful to Musco and the National Park Foundation for turning the lights on Lady Liberty, another step forward in the recovery of this region."

"It is the generosity and support of private citizens and organizations that can help our national parks when they need it most," said Neil Mulholland, President and CEO of the National Park Foundation.  "Through the years, Musco Lighting has demonstrated a continuous commitment to our country's symbolic and special places.  In a time of wide-spread rebuilding, their work to relight the Statue of Liberty will restore one of our nation's most iconic monuments to its place of prominence."

Working in cooperation with the National Park Foundation and the National Park Service, Musco developed a system of LED light fixtures powered by small generators and mounted on movable structures that can be easily relocated as needed during the restoration work.   The state-of-the-art LED lighting system will provide a more than 65 percent reduction in energy.
