Appalachian State University (ASU) is setting an example in energy efficiency, and being a good steward of student fees, with a move to an all-LED lighting solution from Cree in its Plemmons Student Union. ASU is one of the first North Carolina based higher education facilities to take advantage of high-efficiency LED lights. The energy cost savings not only improves the bottom line but most importantly invest in the long-term commitment to the educational experience and safety of the student body.
