Sunset Pointe Plaza
25129 The Old Rd.
Newhall, CA 91381
Arden's Sunset Pointe Plaza property located at 25129 The Old Road in the city of New Hall, California is a 58,105 rentable square foot office building that is 91% occupied. As part of the company's ongoing energy efficiency program, Sunset Pointe Plaza, constructed in 1988, was chosen as a candidate for a lighting retrofit. This addition was conceived as part of the overall efficiency enhancement at the property. The upgrade was specified to reduce wasted energy and reduce operating cost. A typical Arden lighting retrofit was accomplished by replacing approximately T-12 light tubes with T-8 light tubes and installing electronic ballasts. All the incandescent and fluorescent exit signs were replaced with LED exit signs using only two watts per fixture. Also installed were occupancy sensors throughout the building to reduce unoccupied lighting energy
In addition to all the lighting and mechanical upgrades, many no cost / low cost measures were taken that reduced energy consumption. These included:
Arden's engineering department recognizes the financial impact of electrical demand charges, and as such, targets their operation towards peak demand reduction. By monitoring electrical demand levels and establishing a peak target, the energy management systems are programmed to selectively reset equipment to keep the demand within defined limits while never compromising occupant comfort.
The payback for these initiatives is approximately three and a half years with a marked increase in tenant satisfaction and comfort.
