Honda Smart Home US


The Honda Smart Home US is a model zero net energy (ZNE) home located in the UC Davis West Village. Honda collaborated with UC Davis, CLTC and WCEC to build this forward-thinking example of residential sustainability. The home includes daylighting, advanced lighting controls, and high-efficacy, circadian-friendly LED lighting.

Solar panels, special lighting could save Woodland schools big money


KCRA— Woodland Joint Unified School District has installed solar canopies with energy-efficient adaptive lighting at 10 sites throughout the district. The project is expected to save the district thousands of dollars annually in electricity costs while drastically reducing carbon emissions and serving as an example for other school districts focused on improving sustainability and the cost-effectiveness of district operations.
