Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

This project presented planned to increase energy efficiency, and to directly reduce electricity consumption in the gym by 48% and reduce carbon emissions by 3.41 tons of CO2e per year for the induction lamps. Since 23% of California’s greenhouse gas emissions come from electricity generation (the second largest sector after transportation) (AB 32 Scoping Plan, 2008), the lighting project is a direct way to mitigate climate change.
