In developing country such as Indonesia, low cost school are peoples dream. But it seems that condition remains a utopia. In truth, parents still need lots of money so their children can enter school. One of many factors that causes high schooling cost is none other than a very high school operational cost. Most of school operational budget is allocated for paying electrical bill. And most of school electrical consumption comes from light bulbs. For educational fascilities such as schools, lighting quality becomes main factor which can support the whole school activities. Lighting quality for classrooms need to be adequate so that students can concentrate when studying. Libraries must adequately lit so readers can read with enough light. Others like laboratories, sports hall, teacher��s lounge, cafeteria, and so on also need suitable amount of lighting for users�� comfort sake. Although lighting quality does become a considerable factor in most of school designs, but practically lighting quality still becomes a forgetable factor which can be solved with mere artificial light. Architects and designers seem putting less priority for lighting quality and focusing more on ordering forms and spaces, creating facades, arranging hierarchies, and so on. As results, we still find lots of dark classrooms, labs, or libraries that need to be lit with artificial lights even on a day. The best daylighting source comes from the sun, that known as daylight or skylight. Imagine if classrooms, labs, libraries, and sports hall are adequately lit only with daylight, how much electricity savings we can do? This will positively affects in reducing school operational cost directly.
