Why install LED lighting?

LED lights use 60% less energy than traditional light bulbs and last much longer.

What is the Oxfordshire County Council loan scheme?

Oxfordshire County Council offered county-maintained schools the opportunity to apply for a no-interest loan to help them install LED lighting and/or solar PV panels.

This offer is currently closed to new applicants. However, if you are a county-maintained school and would like to register your interest to hear about any future funding opportunities, please complete this short form.
