Camden Church of Christ

Camden Church of Christ of Camden, TN was seeking an upgrade to its sanctuary lighting and controls, in addition to a reduction in the maintenance associated with its antiquated fluorescent lighting in common areas and classrooms. In addition, church representatives sought to increase illumination in the parking lot to LED and use associated energy savings to offset the cost of the project. The church trusted Helios Energy™ to provide a customized and cost-effective solution.
