Green News for Shopping Centers


Last week, The Bellevue Collection celebrated the launch of what will likely be the future for many shopping centers: its electric vehicle charging stations.

The center has 15 locations set up with networked charging stations. It spread the stations out throughout its parking areas so visitors wouldn’t be tied to one specific entrance. And to get off on the best foot with shoppers, ChargeNorthwest Jim Billmaier, and Kemper Development Company Glen Bachman hosted the announcement event. They had several electric vehicles including the Nissan LEAF and Tesla Roadsters on display to demonstrate how the charge stations work.

In other great green news, Simon Property Group has brought in Lighting Science Group’s high-performance and ultra-efficient LED bulbs. The bulbs have been installed in Simon mall kiosks across the U.S.

“[The] bulbs are a dramatic improvement in terms of efficiency, longevity, color rendering, and output over what we previously had installed in our mall kiosks,” said George Caraghiaur, Senior Vice President, Energy Services & Procurement for Simon Property Group.

Meanwhile, Piā€™ilani Village Shopping Center has contracted HNU Energy for a large-scale project to convert the center to clean, renewable energy. The agreement includes LED lighting, distributed solar photovoltaic power generation, and sophisticated system-wide monitoring and maintenance protocols.
