If your school, college, or university still has fluorescent Lighting installed, you will be blown away by how much you are being overcharged, especially when the LED alternative is much cheaper.

How Much Does School Lighting Cost?

School lighting projects cost between £10k - £150k.

There are a number of different factors that can determine the cost to light in your school. Some of the factors that can affect the price include:

  • The number of lights required

  • The size of the school

  • What type of lighting you choose

  • If you require outdoor lights too (floodlights may also be a factor)

LED lighting is a much more cost-effective option when compared to fluorescent bulbs. On average, you should expect to pay around £1.85 a year to run each of your 3W LED bulbs (this is based on 10-hour use, 365 days a year). With fluorescent bulbs, this price increases massively to £3.65.

One of the most well-known advantages of LED lighting is how energy-efficient they are when compared to your average bulb energy use. It is possible to measure the efficiency of a lighting source in lumens.
