Pg e daylighting initiative 99 l.jpg

PG&E Daylighting Initiative (‘99)

  • Correlation between productivity and natural lighting in classrooms

  • Three school sites selected

  • Natural light provided by skylighting and windows

  • Compared students in classrooms with most daylight to those with least daylight


Seattle l.jpg

Seattle

  • Classrooms with largest window area had 9% to 15% higher grades

  • Skylit classrooms had 6% to 7% higher grades


Fort collins l.jpg

Fort Collins

  • There was a 7% improvement in test scores in classrooms with the mostdaylighting

  • 14% to 18% improvement for students in classes with largest window space
