I expect the tenants are happy knowing that the Howard Hughes Center is working hard to offset the ever-rising costs of electricity and mitigate rate hikes.

Campbell Window Film ( was recognized by 3M as the 2015 National Window Film Dealer of the Year. Campbell has announced that after installing 3M window film throughout the Howard Hughes Center, which consists of 5 commercial buildings in Los Angeles, annual energy consumption is expected to be reduced by over 10%. This represents 2,059,195 kWh in yearly energy savings.

Support from the City of Los Angeles
The Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge (LABBC), is part of a national competition to demonstrate 20% energy and water savings by 2020 in existing buildings. The LABBC offers opportunities for local and national recognition, as well as a range of free services to buildings that take the challenge. Los Angeles is endeavoring to ramp up its energy upgrades to existing buildings. The Howard Hughes Center quickly responded to this challenge with a solar window film installation.

Before installation took place, Campbell Window Film was tasked by the building’s management team with demonstrating the energy-savings and monetary benefits of installing window film. “We did test panels, proof-of-technology tests and BTU readings. We ran an energy analysis for each of the five buildings which showed a huge potential energy savings,” said Brad Campbell of Campbell Window Film. The results were analyzed and verified by a third party energy consulting firm.

Calculating the Energy Savings
The Howard Hughes Center project presented a sizeable energy-savings opportunity. The estimated annual savings are approximately 10.51% of the annual energy costs. When you consider the expected 2,059,195 kWh in yearly energy savings, the decision is an easy one for serious-minded commercial property owners who need a reliable way to offset rising energy costs. “It really doesn’t make sense NOT to do it,” Brad Campbell insisted.

Choosing the Right Solution
The project got the green light for Campbell Window Film to install 3M Night Vision 25 window film on 225,000 square feet of glass. The Campbell team completed the project ahead of schedule. “I expect the tenants are happy knowing that the Howard Hughes Center is working hard to offset the ever-rising costs of electricity and mitigate rate hikes,” Brad stressed.

With more commercial building managers and property owners becoming aware of the energy crisis and realizing the many benefits of installing energy-efficient window film on the aging buildings in their portfolio, Los Angeles may be well on its way to claiming the coveted title of Greenest Big City in the U.S.
