RCS is the first school in our area to exclusively use LED lighting throughout all facilities.
Why does that matter?
Studies show that LED lighting:
- decreases occurrence of headaches
- decreases stress and anxiety
- increases productivity and performance
- balances circadian rhythm
- reduces carbon footprint
- eliminates light flicker and hum
- eliminates UV emissions
- provides the full light spectrum (consistent light appearance)
