Los Cerritos Center Goes Solar on BiteSizeTV with Ed Begley Jr

The Los Cerritos Center is a super regional shopping mall located in Cerritos, California that has gone solar to save cash and energy.

Since September 1971, the Los Cerritos Center has been an integral part of the city of Cerritos’ tax revenue. The mall is the city’s largest revenue source, producing $581 per square foot in sales ($296 million total) in 2010. The tax revenue generated from the Los Cerritos Center for its host city totals to approximately $3 million a year.

The facility is managed by The Macerich Company. The mall is served by Metro Local lines: 62 & 130 and Metro Express line: 577.

The most recent design was completed in 2010 and includes three main corridors with some extensions. Besides a solar PV system that Ed Begley Jr helped launch, skylights were added to take advantage of the Southern California sunshine, and marble and stone were added to the walkways, along with seating and landscaping.
