A few other strategies that Golden Gate uses to decrease its carbon footprint and energy consumption include purchasing EnergyStar certified appliances that use less energy to provide the same function as traditional appliances. The park is also installing LED or compact fluorescent lighting with motion based occupancy sensors that automatically turn lights off when a room is not in use. These energy reduction steps, when coupled with renewable energy production using photovoltaic panels for example, allows the park to dramatically decrease its carbon footprint.
