LED Lighting For Schools Saves Them Money

LED lighting for schools makes perfect sense.

After 14 years of working within the Education Sector, we know the issues schools and colleges face. We understand what they need to achieve and also we know how to make this happen.

Within a typical school budget, 80% of the costs are fixed. Only 20% of costs can be controlled. 80% of this manageable budget is the cost of utilities. So, if a school can reduce its gas and electricity use, it will make a substantial saving. LED lighting for schools helps them to achieve this.

As well as saving money, installing LED lighting in a school, will improve the learning environment and set an example to the students, showing them the importance of reducing carbon emissions.

We have a proven track record of installing LED lighting for schools and offer turnkey installation.

LED Lighting Improves The Working Environment

We begin by completing a free site audit, looking at all of your lighting.

By auditing every single light fitting, measuring every single room and recording current light levels, we can calculate your energy usage and annual expenditure.

We then develop a LED lighting scheme for your school and show you how much it will save you. We also calculate the payback period, which is typically around three years.



As well as LED Lighting audit, we can also complete a solar survey in schools.

Rather than looking at lighting, we examine the school’s distribution boards and consumer units. Measurements from Google Earth and the school’s roof are also recorded to allow us to calculate how much energy Solar PV could generate.

Unlike other companies, we will not fill your roofs with as much Solar PV as they can accommodate. We look at the amount of electricity you consume now and the future energy use after LED lighting has been installed. This allows us to tailor the Solar PV installation to match your needs and demands. Optimising both the LED lighting and Solar PV reduces the installation costs and ensures a faster payback period.

Far infrared heating for schools

Far Infrared Heating

Many schools still use costly oil-powered heating. The fluctuating cost of oil makes it very difficult to budget for. Oil-powered heating is old technology and ineffective compared to modern methods.

As well as being considerably cheaper than oil, Far Infrared Heating is also cleaner – there is no dust, fumes or dampness.

For those schools using electric heating, switching to Far Infrared Heating will have a dramatic effect as it is around 98% efficient, meaning the vast majority of electricity that is put into the heater, comes out as heat, unlike your electric central heating.
