Lighting Design and Audit Workshop
The energy crisis and limited natural resources are the concern of the whole world. Do you know that during the past 30 years, “Per Capita Electricity Use” by California residents has remained the same, while the average in the U.S. tripled? How did we do it here in California?
In recent years, a lot of new technology and product development has helped residential and commercial buildings reduce energy consumption. In this week-long course, students will explore one interesting aspect of the built environment that has a major impact on energy usage – lighting. 2015 happens to be the International Year of Light, so this course is particularly timely.
In the Lighting Design and Audit Workshop, students will learn basic concepts of lighting design, survey existing lighting including energy use and light levels, develop plans for retrofitting lighting and controls, calculate energy savings and possible cost savings from reduction of the electric bill. Are you aware that PG&E offers conservation incentive for customers who use less energy than the baseline?
For all students ages 11 and up.

Steven Mesh, LC, IESNA, Principal of Lighting Education & Design
Former Senior Lighting Program Coordinator at PG&E’s Pacific Energy Center. He has designed many energy retrofit projects, and has conducted research, educational and advanced professional training; clients include Union Bank, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Stanford University, University of California/Santa Cruz, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) and LightFair International. Steven has been teaching lighting for 31 years.
During the November 27th session at the Hiller Aviation Museum, attendees will be able to tour the gallery that has many unusual airplanes and helicopters. The course instructor, Steve Mesh, is also a licensed pilot and he will lead tours of the gallery as well as a 747 cockpit. Additionally, attendees will be able to try their hand at flying a helicopter – in a ground-based simulator (none of the aircraft at the museum actually fly!).
