Schools are under a lot of pressure to save money. One way they can do this is by reducing their energy costs. The government are now offering grants to schools in order to help them make the necessary upgrades and improvements. Switching from fluorescent light fixtures to LED lighting can be one of these upgrades, as it will help your school reduce its energy costs significantly.
Energy costs continue to be a major expense for schools. The cost of electricity has dramatically increased over the past couple of years, and schools can save money by using LED lighting.
The main benefit of an LED lighting upgrade is energy efficiency. While incandescent bulbs waste 90% of their electricity, and fluorescent lights are about 50% efficient (although better than incandescents), LEDs can be as much as 80% efficient! That’s a big difference!
Another reason why LEDs are better than other kinds of lighting is because they last so much longer than other types of bulbs. Fluorescent tubes have an average lifespan of 10,000 hours while incandescent bulbs have an average lifespan between 750 – 1,000 hours depending on how often they’re used and how bright they’re kept at all times during use. In contrast with these numbers though: LED lamps will last anywhere between 20-30 years before needing replacement due to burnout or failure in some other way — which means less money spent overall over time since you won’t need new ones so often either way.”
The amount of money saved by a school will vary depending on how much energy they use and how much they pay for it. Savings also depend on how much their electricity or gas costs, as well as other factors like how much light is coming from windows and whether the bulbs are turned off when not in use.
“£500m for energy efficiency upgrades in schools and colleges, and extra £2bn for schools next year to be split between mainstream schools and high needs” – Gov UK
Are you an administrator at a school? Do you have a budget that’s tight, but still want to make meaningful energy efficiency upgrades? There are government grants available to help schools pay for energy efficiency improvements.
If your school qualifies, then these grants can be used to pay for lighting upgrades or other energy efficiency measures. For example, if the lights in your gymnasium are outdated and inefficient, then this might be an area where grant money could be put towards LED lighting or other upgrades like motion sensor switches (which automatically turn off lights when no one is using them).
Government grants are available to help schools pay for important upgrades and improvements. The government wants to ensure that students have access to the best learning environment possible, so they will provide financial assistance for this purpose.
Schools can use government grants to pay for LED lighting upgrades in their facilities, which will result in energy savings and cost reduction over time. Contact us today if you would like more information about our LED lighting solutions or how we can help your school receive a grant!
Switching from fluorescent to LED lighting in your school can save you thousands of pounds per year.
Fluorescent lights are notoriously inefficient, requiring 20-25 watts per square foot to produce the same amount of light as an LED which only uses 6-10 watts per square foot. The lifespan of an LED is also much longer than that of a fluorescent bulb – up to 100,000 hours compared with 10-20 thousand hours for most fluorescents. This means that while they’re more expensive initially, they’ll save on energy costs over their lifetime and pay themselves back within months!
LEDs are also easy to dim or turn off completely if necessary. They’re also controllable remotely so if there’s an emergency situation such as flooding or fire at night time then turning off all your lighting remotely saves valuable time when trying not only keep everyone safe but also minimise damage caused by water seeping into electrical equipment such as computers etc.
