Project Summary

The objective of this project is to quantify the savings from the use of solar tubes as day lighting sources in relocatable classrooms. Specifically, the classrooms would be retrofitted after baselining to determine the extent to which the use of solar tubes for primary lighting can cut the use of lighting power in the classroom. Monitored data would be used to analyze the savings and to calibrate computer models which would allow the determination of impacts around the state and on the HVAC system of the classroom.
