A study initiated by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company showed that students with the most daylighting in their classrooms progressed 20% faster on math tests and 26% faster on reading tests in one year than those with the least.
In the retail setting, daylighting dramatically increased sales—one study showed a 40% increase in sales in daylighted stores when compared to identical non-daylighted stores.
Daylighting contributes to cutting energy use and pollution. By cutting demand for energy production, we cut pollution, too. Over the long term, use of daylighting can help reduce greenhouse gases and other by-products of generating electricity
With an expanding population and finite natural resources, it is critical to develop and implement energy-saving solutions that meet the needs of society without impacting future sustainability.
If designed and implemented correctly, daylighting can deliver environmentally neutral lighting to interior spaces. Once a daylighting system is installed, there is no ongoing impact as there is no pollution, no sources to maintain, no energy drawn, and little fixture maintenance required over the life of the product
Together we can make a difference in building a sustainable energy future and a sustainable planet.
