Grocoff, Paul N.
This report examines both electric lighting and daylighting, listing criteria to determine the correct equipment for a school renovation or building project. Specific topics examine use of prismatic lenses; parabolic louvers; and indirect lighting, including the cost savings of using indirect lighting. The report indicates there is no clear answer to which lighting system to select and offers a table of pros and cons of each system to aid in decision making. (Contains 2 references). (GR)
