Pegasus Associates Lighting has announced a Commitment to Education & Safety program that offers LED exit signs to education institutions at a heavily discounted price. The aim is to support schools strapped for funds and to encourage the integration of LED lights into buildings in order to cut energy and maintenance costs.

A recent survey from the American Association of School Administrators found that budget cuts will be much more significant for 2010-2011 than in the past. According to the survey, the majority of K-12 school leaders are planning to delay technology updates next year. Half of school leaders will also eliminate or delay instructional improvement programs. Class sizes will continue to escalate as well: 62 percent of school leaders plan to increase class sizes for 2010-2011. With the budget cuts affecting so many essential resources, schools are finding it difficult to reserve funds for safety updates and maintenance.

Pegasus Lighting’s Commitment to Education & Safety program will offer a free LED exit sign for every three signs purchased by a school, college or university. Both public and private institutions anywhere in the country are eligible for the program.

To receive the discount, education institutions must call Pegasus Lighting’s toll free number at (800) 392-4818 to place an order.

In this presentation, Jean-Louis Scartezzini and Mirjam Münch, from the Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory at EPFL, present their experiences with daylighting research and technology. Their work illustrates possible integration steps toward optimized “Day and Night” lighting environments with respect to energy consumption and human health.

Marilyne Andersen, associate professor in the Building Technology Program of MIT’s Department of Architecture and head of the Daylighting Lab, also joins the discussion with an overview of her efforts to better integrate energy-efficiency and human-responsiveness to daylighting into architecture and design.
