This April, the Mission Bay Aquatic Center reached its five year long goal of obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance. It is the first to achieve this certification in the California State University system and first commercial building in San Diego to achieve net-zero consumption.

"Sullivan Solar Power installed an outstanding solar PV system, which was particularly challenging due to the saltwater environment," said Glen Brandenburg, founder of the Mission Bay Aquatic Center and current Director of Facilities and Sustainability for the Associated Students of San Diego State University. "There is a long list of LEED Platinum requirements, but the 41,000-watt solar PV system was crucial, as you get the most points for a net-zero energy building."
