Daylighted Classrooms Create a Bright, Cheerful Environment Ideal for Learning and Teaching
—At a Cost-To-Build That School Districts Rate A+
A classroom's use of energy is twofold: lighting and HVAC. When you daylight the classroom with a Sunoptics daylighting system you can have the lights off 70% to 80% of the time, with less air conditioning required.
But daylighting provides an even greater benefit to schools: superior light quality. In research studies, this superior light quality has correlated to increased student performance.
And if that's not enough, daylighting's cost-savings benefits make it a “no-fail” lighting option for both new school construction and retrofit.
Increased student and teacher attendance are added benefits of daylighted classrooms.
