Escalator Power-Downs: Reducing Santa Monica Place's Demand for Electricity

As part of Santa Monica Place’s commitment to sustainability, we are always looking for ways to reduce our demand for electricity. One area we can make a significant and immediate impact is with the escalator operations after shopping hours. At 11PM, the escalators located in the East and West courts will be turned off until 6AM. Additionally at 1AM, the Center Plaza up escalators will be powered down until 6AM.  Elevators will remain operational during the escalator power downs. We have ordered specialized barricades to place in front of escalators with messaging that explains that turning off the equipment is environmentally responsible.
