Recent Testimonials

We recently had our whole school refitted with new LED Lighting supplied and installed by RS Lighting. From survey to completion of the project, everything went smoothly, the school looks fantastic. The install was completed on time and the install team did a great job. We would highly recommend RS Lighting to other schools

Peter Parker
Site Manager

On behalf of the pupils and staff I wanted to thank RS Lighting for the manner in which they have installed our new lighting system. They were always pleasant and very professional

Lawrence Chapman

As a school our ambition was not to just save money, we wanted to improve the learning and teaching environment for our students and staff. RS Lighting have done just that with a full install of new LED Lighting

Mark Lewis
Head teacher

We are extremely pleased with the LED lighting upgrade funded by Less Is More Capital and supplied by RS Lighting. Having completed CIF and Salix bids in the past, this was a fantastic solution to my on-going challenge. It has meant a nicer environment for our students, teachers and employees. In addition, we are saving substantial money and carbon each month. The team were professional and quick. I was amazed at the speed at which the whole school solution was installed. We’re happy we made the change to LED, only wish we had done it sooner!

Martin Towers
Business Manager

At Putnoe Primary School, following an extensive audit and cost saving calculation, we decided to change our fluorescent lighting to LED lighting. This was supplied and installed by RS Lighting. We used an operating lease from Less is More Capital which has funded our project with no capital outlay. The whole team from start to finish were extremely tidy and efficient. The school looks brighter, more modern and is now more efficient, which as an ‘Ambassador Eco-Schools Green Flag holder’ is very important to us! I would be more than happy to recommend Less is More Capital and RS Lighting to other schools.

Steve Dwyer
Site Manager

Representatives from RS Lighting and Less is More Capital came to a Governors’ meeting and explained it fully. There was no outlay, and all we can expect now are the savings. The team who did the work, worked in conjunction with our Site Services Officer. They came back with no problem when we had a few teething problems which was to be expected in a school our size, but absolutely nothing major. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for this type of project. We would be more than willing to let anyone visit the school who is interested but unsure
