Lighting upgrades

Energy efficient lighting

Two hundred schools will receive $25,000 in program funding to install lighting upgrades.

The Sustainable Schools program will target the installation of LED lighting to replace old and inefficient lighting such as fluorescent tubes. Remaining program funds may be used to install lighting controls.

Low Carbon Schools

More efficient lighting uses less electricity to provide the same or better lighting output. The installation of LED lighting is expected to:

  • improve lighting in learning environments
  • reduce electricity use
  • reduce cooling requirements as the light fittings produce less heat.

By reducing the amount of electricity needed to power the school, schools can help reduce carbon emissions produced through the generation of electricity.
