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.
