Creating Solutions to Capture Savings

Keeping the lights on in K-12 schools across the U.S. is big business.

With a consumption rate of $6 billion per year, that equates to roughly $100,000 for a 50,000 square foot campus. For larger institutions, the statistics are staggering.

The average school runs:

More Reasons
to Love LED


The truth is you care about the quality of your campus just as much as you care about the quality of your students’ education. Our Lighting-as-a-Service sets you apart from other schools, adding to your overall appeal.

On top of that, switching to LED will:

  • Enhance lighting efficiency
  • Improve safety for drop-offs and pickups
  • Lower kilowatt consumption
  • Provide long-term savings on maintenance

Many schools have an on-staff facility manager responsible for campus-wide maintenance. With traditional lighting systems, countless resources are spent on constant (and unpredictable!) maintenance.
