Light-RITE California White Paper

Publication Date: 

California is embarking on some of the boldest building retrofit programs in the country to achieve its pioneering climate goals set by the state’s legislature and voters. In order to ensure that this large-scale investment is wisely executed and achieves maximum energy savings, stakeholders need to quickly develop an integrated statewide educational program that will teach our public building facility managers best practices and implementation strategies.

To this end, CLTC Director Michael Siminovitch is collaborating with other stakeholders to launch the Light-RITE California program, a training curriculum that will provide key decision makers with the knowledge and tools they need to optimize project results. The program focuses on the top 10 lighting retrofit strategies that have been proven to reliably capture the most savings and includes instruction on conducting lighting audits, completing measurement and verification and handling maintenance.
