The parking garage is being constructedunder two and a half blocks and will have room for 1,500 cars. Garage lights will be on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The garage will use induction lights,which last 100,000 hours and provide an impressive 71 lumens per watt. (Lumens area measure of the amount of light.) Standard metal halide lights are rated at only 10,000hours and 51 lumens per watt.

"This means the induction lights needonly 40 percent of the energy,” said Karasaki. "Maintenance costs are also much less because they last 10 times longer. And, the system as designed costs less to begin with."

This will be the first major garage installation of induction lighting on the West Coast.

"Lower energy use and increased occupant comfort is a great combination," said Karasaki.
