Why choose LED Lighting to save your school money?

As the popularity of LED lighting continues to grow, more and more organisations and institutions are making the switch from traditional lighting to the more energy-efficient light sources and schools are no exception. Today, many learning institutions are facing rising energy costs, as well as tougher energy codes and standards, while budgets and overall funding continue to shrink. Fortunately, the lighting industry has evolved with new technology advancements that have made it easier and more economical for schools to reduce energy use. Schools can do away with the low quality, inefficient, and under performing heat-emitting incandescent bulbs and flickering fluorescent tubes, in favour of a greener and more pleasant lighting alternative popularly known as LED light.

What are the average energy costs in a school?

Power consumption in schools can vary depending on multiple factors, including occupancy hours, the age, size and design of buildings, their level of maintenance and the amount lighting equipment installed. From statistics published by the Department of Education in 2013, there are 24,372 schools in the UK including nursery schools, state-funded primary schools, state-funded secondary schools, special schools, pupil referral units and independent schools. All schools can benefit with brighter lighting that costs less financially.


LEDs are eco-friendly and save schools money


With lighting accounting for close to 80 percent of any school’s electricity bill, it is no surprise that lighting is considered one of the best areas to apply cost cutting measures. LED is one of the best ways to reduce electrical consumption, counterbalance the increase in energy prices and also reduce CO2 emissions.

Bring your school lighting up to working standards

Besides the functioning and eco-friendly value, the superior quality of LED lighting can enhance the concentration and motivation of students in the classroom. Studies have revealed that fluorescent and incandescent lighting cause a condition known as “flicker vertigo” due to their flickering, which can cause nausea, headaches and reduced motivation to learn. Additionally, the poor lighting from these sources causes drowsiness and lethargy, which make learning extremely difficult, especially for children who require special education. Fortunately, LED lighting has addressed this problem with zero downfalls.
