A Job Halfway Done- SFO Solar

Conundrum of ideas at the San Francisco Airport (SFO). Are they really being green? Let’s look at two areas of the airport:

1) I saw on the roofs of the different terminals they have solar panels (or photo voltaic panels) to reduce use of coal, nuclear or other fuels used by PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric- the local utility). This is a good move to help improve the environment.

2) I noticed in the baggage claim they have inefficient T12 fluorescent (older thick bulbs) lighting. It doesn’t make sense. If you want to save energy, consider your whole building.

Looks like a job halfway done… They are producing power using solar, but not saving energy by using inefficient lighting fixtures.

Apply this to your own business. What looks good to most people, and what areas need work? Work to improve all areas of your business.
