A new, more energy-efficient McDonald’s is now open in the Saltbox Village shopping center in Cary, N.C. Featuring LED lighting from Cree, the new building is on-track to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified McDonald’s® in the state.

The site’s original McDonald’s restaurant was demolished in early 2009 and rebuilt specifically to achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Ric Richards, franchise owner/operator, hopes to be LEED-gold-certified by October. The store is lit 97 percent with LED lights, and when compared to the standard lighting packages, this store consumes 78 percent less electricity for lighting.
