Electrical Supply for Educational FacilitiesEducation


Reduced school funding means fewer teachers, scarcer resources, and reduced student programs and services. Schools have faced rising costs and shrinking budgets for years – and, for years, Van Meter has helped educational facilities use electrical supply solutions to improve productivity and reduce energy costs so their limited budgets can be stretched farther.

The No. 1 goal for educational facilities is to make sure students learn in an environment that supports education instead of detracts from it. Investments in renewable energy and energy-efficiency solutions available from Van Meter can help lessen monthly financial burdens, while other electrical supply solutions, such as lighting, security, and networking, provide a quality atmosphere in which to learn.

Our number one goal in purchasing new, energy-efficient lighting was to make our facilities more inviting and engaging for students. Van Meter experts helped us find the best, most cost-effective solution to reach our goal and beyond.

  • Van Meter has become my go-to source for everything I need to keep all 15 buildings I am responsible for running with ease. I can't say enough about the customer service I receive, to the point I have built friendships with many of the people I deal with on a day-to-day basis. When I need it, they are there for me, and I can't ask for much more.
