The Advantage of Skylights: Lower Energy Consumption and Reduced Costs

Artificial lighting is expensive. It is one of the largest sources of energy consumption in commercial and industrial buildings, accounting for approximately 40 percent of a building total energy consumption.

Skylights are an attractive and affordable way to add natural light and reduce your energy consumption. In a properly designed building, you can reduce your artificial lighting by up to 80 percent, allowing you to recoup the cost of skylights in two years or less.

Research suggests that the natural light provided by skylights delivers additional benefits to a variety of business. Natural light can reduce employee fatigue in office settings, increase sales in retail stores, help students learn better in school, and deliver healthy benefits to hospital patients.
