LED lighting for schools

Lighting accounts for about 50% of any school’s electricity bill, so it’s no surprise that more schools in the UK are opting for investing in LED lighting.

LED is one of the fastest ways to cut down in electrical consumption, compensate the rise in energy prices and reduce CO2 emissions. Furthermore, changing your school’s lighting to an LED model can reduce your lighting bill up to 80% when combined with a better use of daylight, the installation of motion sensors and switching off lights in empty classrooms.

Energy-efficient lighting not only can make significant savings in any school costs, but can also improve the learning environment leading to improved student performance.
The quality of light affects people on many different ways, and a better lighting can improve concentration and calm pupils.
