Shine a Light on School Lighting
Since LED lighting first made an appearance in modern times, its popularity has only grown, especially in commercial buildings such as factories, warehouses, department stores, and schools. Many of the schools in the UK are looking for ways to save money and aside from firing teachers or cutting important programs; schools can save money through a “radically” new method—changing the lighting.
The current lighting fixtures and incandescent and fluorescent bulbs aren’t cost effective, efficient or cool to the touch. Why should the bastions of our children’s education be stuck with high cost, low quality lighting when there are cost-effective, efficient, low heat-emitting LEDs?
Cutting School Energy & Electricity Costs
Determining school energy consumption costs will vary because of several factors; hours of occupation, the age, dimensions and design of the school buildings, the amount of upkeep required and the number of lights used throughout the buildings. Of the nearly 25,000 schools in the UK, only a few of them have stepped into the 21st century and are transitioning from old lighting methods into LED lighting.<
Benefits of LED Lighting in Schools
Because lighting accounts for 80% of a school’s power costs, cutting those costs by transitioning the inefficient lighting into low cost, high efficiency LED lights can save a school up to 90% on its annual energy bills. Because LEDs consume less energy, they cost less. It’s that simple. Because LEDs are efficient, they actually produce 80% more light than traditional lighting sources. Consider this: brighter hallways, classrooms, recreational spaces and administrative offices, but lower energy costs.
