Daylighting

Turn Off the Lights!

Lighting accounts for about 20% of all the electricity used in America – accounting for 10% of all CO2 emissions.  Daylighting may reduce your annual lighting costs by 70%.

Dayligting has been proven to be able to shut off electric lights for an average of 8 hours a day during the highest cost of energy time of the day.  Daylighting will work on a cloudy day.  However, if a dark heavy thunderstorm is overhead, electric lighting will be necessary during normal daylight hours.  During winter months when the sun is lower on the horizon, daylighting assists with shutting off lights.

Daylighting provides more than daylight, it creates a whole new world of energy savings, reduced pollution and improved work, shopping and learning environments.  Daylighting can replace electric lighting 70 to 80% of the daylight hours while producing much less heat than electric lighting.  By cutting demand for energy production, daylighting reduces greenhouse gases and the pollution of water and air – the by-products of generating electricity.

 A study 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 can:
Improve employee morale
Reduce absenteeism
Reduce errors
Improve product quality
Increase productivity
