Why install PV/LED?

Everyone wants to see action on climate change and improvements to the life chances of young people. The education sector is in a unique position to benefit from the energy savings and income-generating opportunities afforded by LED lighting and PV installations to achieve these twin objectives.

Create surplus income to reinvest in educational and social outcomes

Deliver a positive impact on climate change – cut CO2 emissions

Demonstrate your organisation’s corporate social responsibility and initiate student engagement

Improve the teaching and learning environment – better quality of light

Reduce utilities bills. Save money

Reduce maintenance requirements – no more bulb replacements

Reduce your exposure to rising energy costs

Cash positive from day one – no capital investment required

Improve the compliance of your emergency lighting systems


About LED lighting 

Traditional lighting in academies and schools typically accounts for between 30 and 40 percent of a school’s energy bill.

LED lighting has the potential to deliver savings of up to 80 percent on the lighting bill. As such, academies and schools could benefit from a comprehensive LED retrofit programme.

LED lighting not only delivers energy savings but also delivers maintenance savings as it has an expected life of 70,000 to 100,000 hours. At Less is More we warranty the lighting for 13 years, longer than anyone else in the sector, so there is no maintenance cost for 13 years. This saves a typical secondary academy about £3,000 per year and typical primary school £900 per year.

LED lighting will also improve the quality of light levels in the classroom, helping improve the teaching environment. All lighting is designed to meet the latest Department for Education requirement for Lux levels in each type of teaching space.


About Photo Voltaic (PV) panels


Photo Voltaic panels convert the sun’s energy into electricity. They are a very effective way to reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint and protect them from the vagaries of the electricity market 

Our aim is to help every academy and school generate up to 25% of their own electricity. We typically look to install 100kWp array on each secondary academy and a 30kWp array on each primary academy where practicable. 

The Photo Voltaic installation has a 13 year parts and labour warranty and a 20 year part warranty on the Photo Voltaic panels
