The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), owned by the City of Los Angeles and managed by AEG Facilities, unveiled its 2.21-megawatt solar array during a press conference with Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The solar project contributes to the mission of Garcetti’s “Sustainable City pLAn” and AEG 1EARTH, AEG’s sustainability program established to reduce the company’s environmental impact.

“This solar project was first proposed in 2014,” said Doane Liu, executive director, Los Angeles Department of Convention and Tourism Development. “It is exciting to see it come to fruition and experience the impact it will make in the building and Los Angeles.”

Located on the roof of South Hall, the addition brings the facility’s total solar use to 2.58 megawatts, and will reduce the LACC’s carbon footprint by 2,554 metric tons per year.

“I am proud to celebrate the completion of the Convention Center’s solar project,” said Jon Vein, chair, City of Los Angeles Department of Convention and Tourism Development Commission. “This project has set a precedent for other facilities to follow and is key to keeping Los Angeles the number one solar city in America.”

The solar array is a powerful addition to the facility that will impact energy conservation for years to come.

The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) announced its straw ban during a sustainability presentation at the National League of Cities (NLC) City Summit on November 9, 2018.
