UC Davis is constructing a Zero Net Energy development consisting of housing, recreation, and an education center. The Zero Net Energy status of UC Davis’ West Village is achieved largely by the use of a 4-megawatt, high efficiency SunPower solar power system. UC Davis West Village also integrates sustainable design in order to help reduce reliance on automobiles (the community incorporates recreation and retail facilities into the design of the development). The apartment buildings are also equipped with energy-conserving components such as solar reflective roof materials, high efficiency lighting, added insulation, high efficiency air conditioning and appliances.
