Energy Conservation Initiative

Over the past few years, FCC and its affiliates have engaged in greening of its portfolio.  This initiative has focused on reducing energy usage and conserving water.  By working with various funding sources including utility firms, this initiative has improved sustainability and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.  A recent example is a 191 unit high rise apartment complex which replaced over 200 interior and exterior lighting fixtures which now use over 400 LED energy saving light bulbs.  Occupancy sensors were also installed in some common areas.  Water conservation measured included new low flow toilets, aerators and showerheads in each apartment unit.  These action items are now paying dividend with annual reduction of over 100,000 kwh of electricity and a reduction almost 200,000 gallons in water per month.
