Quaker Ridge School


Coastal Clock and chime went out to Quaker Ridge School over the Summer. We Replaced the fluorescent lighting with LED lighting and helped Quaker Ridge become greener in their day-to-day operations.

LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. While fluorescent lights which convert 95% of energy to heat and only 5% into light! LED lights also draw much less power than traditional lighting; a typical 84-watt fluorescent can be replaced by a 36 watt LED to give the same level of light. Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.
