CFP Action Plan - Energy
Reduce park operations'
energy use emissions to
25 percent below
2007 levels by 2020.
According to Energy Star, the average American home has 30 light features; over their life cycle, 30 CFLs can save 13,500 kWh of electricity; this is equivalent to a total of 9.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide. As the Park currently has 69 housing structures in use as well as an additional 140 administrative structures, upgrading lighting options has the potential to make a significant impact on GHG emissions.
