Schools across Colorado, California, Nebraska, Wyoming and New Mexico
have called on Financial Energy to develop energy efficient lighting designs
that are conducive to learning. We have retrofitted many different
facilities in both universities and K-12 schools including: dorms,
classrooms, offices, athletic facilities, laboratories, and auditoriums.

Front Range Community College
Front Range Community College is located in Longmont, CO and has a
student body of approximately 20,500 students. Financial Energy
completed a renovation of their lighting system by installing 1837 new
LED lamps and motion sensors throughout the 195,000 square foot campus.
The new lighting design resulted in a new savings of $420,373
between 2015 and 2016. A professor from the English Department
stated that the new LED installation has made it “quieter in the
classroom” and that it is “finally brighter”. She exclaims that,
“overall improvements are fabulous” and that the new lighting provides
an improved learning environment for both students and faculty.
Adams State College
This project with Adam State College included work in over 926,000
sq.ft. of classrooms and administration facilities at a total
design/build cost of $533,000. Financial Energy designed and installed
an energy efficient lighting system customized for the College, which
included lighting and controls. Calculating existing and future energy
use, Financial Energy was able to show the dramatic energy and cost
savings. This project included classrooms, offices, other various indoor
rooms as well as exterior lighting. Adams State College saves
$83,900 annually as a result of this work.
High Tech High
San Diego, CA
High Tech High operates thirteen schools in San Diego, California.
Financial Energy provided these schools with the latest lighting
technology throughout their facilities including, classrooms, media arts
facilities, hallways, and offices. These upgrades have resulted in
an annual net savings of $45,398.29.
Mesa School District
Grand Junction, Colorado
Financial Energy constructed a comprehensive energy efficient lighting
design that included LED and sensor controls. Covering the entire school
district, we were an integral part of a sweeping and comprehensive
energy saving design and upgrade in the District. Financial Energy’s
portion alone covered 2.83 million square feet of educational
facilities. The job was completed at a total cost of $2,339,440
and delivers annual net savings of $411,800.
Colorado Mountain College
Glenwood Springs, CO
Financial Energy worked on Colorado Mountain College locations in
Glenwood Springs, Spring Valley and Summit (Dillon Center). Our design
improved lighting and lighting control in their offices, classrooms,
stairwells, and other locations totaling nearly 75,000 square feet.
This energy efficient upgrade contributes to a more productive learning
environment using high quality, high visual acuity light, while reducing
the school’s energy total energy bills by 18%.
University of Colorado Boulder Lighting Project
Between 1999 and 2011, Financial Energy performed over $1.6 million worth
of energy efficiency retrofits on University of Colorado campuses. These
campuses include Colorado Springs, Boulder, and Denver. In 2011 we performed
lighting retrofits in University of Colorado Boulder campus building’s
including: Environmental Health & Sciences, Joint Institute for Lab
Astrophysics, Macky Auditorium, Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy,
and Center for Innovation and Creativity totaling approximately 245,000
square feet. Providing varying options, we were able to fit the budget of
the University of Colorado to offer the most cost effective retrofit
University of Denver
Since 2001 Financial Energy has worked with the University of Denver to
ensure that their facilities are functioning with the most advanced energy
and cost efficient lighting. Our work has included energy audits, lighting
designs, and retrofits throughout classrooms and labs, offices, dorms, and
athletic facilities. Our continued partnership with the University of
Denver shows our dedication to ensuring that our customers are saving both
energy and money with the best technology available.
