McCrory cheers on UNC energy savings

RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory is praising a University of North Carolina system energy efficiency initiative estimated to save $25 million.

McCrory said Friday in a statement that the UNC Board of Governors will save $25 million in taxpayer money over seven years through the installation of energy-efficient lighting fixtures and other efforts.

The agreement will lead to the installation of more than 100,000 energy-efficient lighting fixtures in classrooms, dormitories and other facilities across 13 UNC campuses, UNC TV, the NC Arboretum and the state Department of Commerce Energy Office.

North Carolina-based Johnson Controls Inc. will lead the program. The effort includes CREE, a major energy-efficient lighting firm also based in the state.

    The clouds have definitely transitioned… from roll clouds due to convection up near Augusta. Now the clouds have moved out ahead of the deeper convection into a more stable environment in our area… taking on the wavy appearance. So you will see both roll cloud pics from back west… but what we are now seeing is wave asperatus clouds in our area.
