“Beautiful. Sustainable. Handcrafted in California,” is Metro Lighting’s mission in providing decorative lighting fixtures for residential and hospitality clients. This business offers custom lighting solutions fabricated on site and a gorgeous selection of locally crafted items in its 3,000-square-foot showroom. Metro Lighting has many well-deserved recognitions for its products and facility, including being a Bay Area Certified Green Business and winning an Acterra Business Environmental Award. Metro Lighting is 100 percent solar-powered by a rooftop 21-kWH solar array, an investment that will eventually save more than $12,000 per year in electricity bills. This is especially impressive with a business that requires a lot of power to showcase lighting. Metro Lighting also implemented an “Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy,” uses recycled materials for packing and shipping, supplies on-site bike parking, has converted most of its lights to LEDs and CFLs, and installed low-flow toilets and faucets. Metro Lighting has become a leader in its community through the Sustainability Business Alliance, Buy Local Berkeley and the West Berkeley Design Loop. The business is committed to quality, durability, energy efficiency and local manufacturing.
