The Offices at South Coast Plaza

In the fall of 2012, South Coast took advantage of incentives from Southern California Edison Co. to install the LOBOS automated system in order to provide comfort-focused ADR functionality and to be prepared for future rate changes.

During a Southern California Edison commissioning test, the buildings equipped with the breakthrough technology of LOBOS delivered one megawatt of automated demand response to the Southern California electrical grid. That was three times the amount that had been expected by Southern California Edison.

The three South Coast Plaza buildings include two of the tallest buildings in Orange County, the 21-story Plaza and Center Towers, and the 17-story Park Tower, with a total square footage of 1.5 million. With LOBOS Automated Demand Response, the next time Southern California Edison issues an alert, the South Coast Plaza office towers will have the ability to reduce grid load by 1,000 kilowatts.
