Education Lighting Consulting and Project Management

Lighting is pivotal in how students learn and participate in their education. Proper lighting conditions can positively impact both physical well-being and cognitive functions. Professionally designed lighting systems for the classroom can also help reduce eye strain, regulate circadian rhythms, and improve overall health, allowing students to focus better on their studies.

School lighting also affects mood and concentration, crucial for academic performance and teacher engagement with their students. In task-specific scenarios, appropriate lighting is indispensable for activities ranging from reading and writing to practical tasks like art projects or lab experiments.

Old Schools and Old Lighting

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average age of school buildings in the United States is 42 years old, meaning most school facilities were built several decades before the adoption of LED lighting and smart control devices.

According to Energy Star, America’s schools spend more than $7.5 billion on energy annually. That’s more than they spend on new textbooks and computers combined. And of that annual expenditure, over 25% of electrical costs are often related to lighting alone.

The choice for academic buildings for many years, fluorescent lighting is not just less energy-efficient than LED fixtures, it also delivers a significantly less healthy light for students and teachers.

The good news is that converting to energy-efficient LED lighting systems is more cost-effective and attainable than ever. And that’s where EPCO can help, thanks to our established partnerships with installers and industry-leading professionals such as IES, DSIRE, and more.
