Creating Solutions to Capture Savings
Keeping the lights on in K-12 schools across the U.S. is big business.
With a consumption rate of $6 billion per year, that equates to roughly $100,000 for a 50,000 square foot campus. For larger institutions, the statistics are staggering.
The average school runs:
600 lighting fixtures
Lights run for 13.5 hours a day
Lights are in use 260 days a year
Average energy cost is $0.12 per kWh
Upgrading your lighting system doesn’t need to be a decades-in-the-making decision. Nor should it break the bank.
Campus lighting can be complex, and FES believes that the decision to upgrade to LED lighting should be simple.
FES is lighting made simple. At every step of the way, we ensure an effortless transition.

Simple Solutions with Proven Results

To date, FES has partnered with nearly 200 schools to achieve massive collective savings.
to Love LED
The truth is you care about the quality of your campus just as much as you care about the quality of your students’ education. Our Lighting-as-a-Service sets you apart from other schools, adding to your overall appeal.
On top of that, switching to LED will:
- Enhance lighting efficiency
- Improve safety for drop-offs and pickups
- Lower kilowatt consumption
- Provide long-term savings on maintenance
Many schools have an on-staff facility manager responsible for campus-wide maintenance. With traditional lighting systems, countless resources are spent on constant (and unpredictable!) maintenance.

Bill Blum, Kennedy Catholic Family of Schools
Our new LED lighting has added so much brightness to our buildings and parking lots. It has been incredible to work with FES and Enertech for maintenance requests. Everything is timely and everyone is so nice to work with. The biggest benefit for our school system has been the cost savings. In just two years with this program, we have been able to reduce our energy costs by 20%. Everyone has been wonderful!
