Read All About It: Supervisor David Chiu's Office Building After-Hours Lighting Ordinance

Supervisor David Chiu has introduced the ‘lights out’ legislation you may have heard about that requires (from the legislative digest):

…owners of commercial buildings located in the downtown and their tenants to turn off all lights in unoccupied areas after business hours except for lights required by the Building Code to be illuminated for emergency exiting unless the lights are controlled by occupancy sensor control devices or located in areas where after hours cleaning and other maintenance staff are required by their service contract to illuminate areas only while providing services within the area. This Ordinance also requires building owners to submit reports about their buildings.
