Assessing the Needs of a Growing School District

Looking to create an optimal learning environment for your students? Dive into the world of LED classroom lighting with Halcon Lighting’s comprehensive guide. Discover how an upgrade to LED can enhance focus, improve academic performance, and even lead to significant energy savings. It’s time to shed light on a brighter future for education.

Our company worked with a local school district experiencing rapid growth. We visited 5 schools to evaluate aging lighting systems struggling to accommodate expanded classrooms and facilities.

Student population was projected to increase 15% in the next 5 years. This would utilize currently unused areas. The district needed a scalable lighting solution for both existing and future construction projects.

Developing a Comprehensive Upgrade Plan

We proposed replacing fixtures in classrooms, gyms, cafeterias and labs during the first phase. These areas consumed most lighting hours and demanded high quality illumination.

Additional areas like offices, hallways and exterior lights were slated for phase 2 and 3 over 18 months. This allowed upgrading whole schools while keeping disruptions to a minimum.

Less frequently utilized storage rooms, copy rooms and restrooms would be outfitted with occupancy sensors cutting energy usage by automatically switching lights off when unoccupied.

Maximizing Visual Comfort in Learning Spaces

New LEDs provide excellent colour rendering for visual presentations and text visibility. Understanding the Colour Rendering Index (CRI) is crucial as it measures how accurately light sources render the colours of various objects compared to natural light. Glare has been eliminated with no dark shadows to reduce eye strain.

Dimmable LEDs were installed in libraries to allow various light levels for different tasks. Brightness could be increased during exams yet reduced for reading comfort.

Integrating Daylight and Occupancy Sensing

Daylight harvesting controls in entries and halls dimmed LEDs in sync with natural light levels. Sensors turn off lights when rooms are empty 30+ minutes, reducing energy waste.

Achieving Substantial Cost and Energy Savings

The 5 school retrofit is estimated to cut $50,000+ annually in electricity bills. LEDs consume 75% less power while lasting 5X longer, minimizing maintenance costs over the fixtures' 50,000 hour lifetime.

Sustaining Efficiency Through Ongoing Partnership

Impressed by initial results, the district approved a district-wide LED conversion. We now provide preventative maintenance, monitoring energy usage to identify additional savings.
