California Law Requires Commercial Buildings Follow Strict Energy Guidelines

Commercial Lighting Control Can Aid in that Endeavor
For the last eight years, the City of San Francisco has focused its efforts on creating buildings that are healthy, sustainable places to live, work, play, and learn. The city’s Green Building Code requires that both commercial and residential buildings reduce energy and water use, divert waste from landfills, encourage alternate modes of transportation, and support the health and comfort of building occupants. The Code, which sets green building standards, applies to new construction as well as major renovations to existing buildings. Solutions, such as commercial lighting control, have shown to increase occupancy comfort and dramatically reduce energy consumption thereby cutting costs.
