The solar photovoltaic system integrates into the sustainability principles being used in the rest of the Civic Center. 

The building was dedicated in 2015 is LEED, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) with other sustainability features integrated throughout the building to reduce its impact on the environment while also providing its occupants with a healthier space to work and gather.
