REQUIREMENT: AS offices must use the most energy-efficient lighting feasible and should upgrade to new fixtures as technology and funds allow.

REQUIREMENT: Lights must be turned off when not in use, and all light switches must have signage reminding occupants to turn off lights when leaving the space.

RECOMMENDATION: Natural lighting should be utilized during the daytime whenever possible.

Most of the overhead lights in the main A.S. building are equipped with LED lighting on motion sensors. This upgrade saves a significant amount of energy and decreases the need for task lighting in the main A.S. building. Other spaces, such as the Pardall Center and Annex, however, should still find ways to minimize the number of lights that are turned on at any given time by using table lamps, etc to only light the area needed.

Even with motion sensor lighting, however, it is important to turn off lights when leaving a space. Studies show that prompting with stickers and signs asking users to turn off lights is effective, particularly if the sign is updated or redesigned regularly.
