Archbishop McCarthy

Archbishop McCarthy High School serves 1600 students. The school had more than 2200 lights operating for 18 hours each day. The lighting technology was expensive, outdated and subpar. FES enabled Archbishop McCarthy to upgrade its lights to sustainable LED lighting technology. This partnership immediately reduced the school’s energy costs by half while providing a better learning environment.
