The total cost of energy in educational facilities can be more than is spent on both textbooks and computers. As much as 30% of a school district’s total energy is used inefficiently or unnecessarily. Educational facilities have a wide variety of spaces that each require unique considerations to maximize energy savings and improve usability. Classrooms and lecture halls require light levels and color temperatures that maximize student and staff performance.
Smart Building Controls allow occupancy sensing to meet on-demand lighting needs in indoor spaces, while exterior upgrades provide improved safety for students and staff. Gymnasiums and other recreational spaces require specific expertise in the light output of high ceiling spaces to provide a first-class experience for players and spectators. The experts at WESCO Energy Solutions know a successful full campus energy upgrade begins with a state-of-the-art design incorporating the latest technologies and finishes with first-class installation.
