Our beautiful outdoor setting provides a wonderful classroom to teach young people about environmental stewardship. In order to help practice what we preach right here at Flat Rock we recently moved our facility over to all LED lights. We partnered with Viox Services to identify a plan and used the rebate program from Duke Energy to help pay for the conversion. Our Director of Buildings and Grounds, Matt Sperr, Maintenance Technician Bret Williams, and volunteers from Florida International University all helped with the conversion. We are excited to be both saving money and moving our camp towards greater sustainability. According to our strategic plan we will continue to seek out more of these opportunities and next up is improving our heating and cooling through better thermostat control, weather stripping around doors, and some other efficiencies.
A big thanks to everyone who helped make the LED conversion possible!
