Last year, 102 of the Irvine Company Office Properties’ were certified as ENERGY STAR®, as part of the U.S. EPA’s energy efficiency program. The Irvine, CA-based company now owns and operates the largest number of certified CRE properties in the nation.
The company’s 23.4 million square feet of certified office space also ranked second nationally in terms of total certified square footage. Last year, Irvine Co. became the first real estate company to create a fleet of hybrid-electric buildings® with Advanced Microgrid Systems that will be powered by state-of-the-art Tesla Energy.
