A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted:

FY 2013 was adopted as the baseline since that year did not have any building construction occurring to alter the energy consumption.

A brief description of any building temperature standards employed by the institution:

ICC utilizes two Building Automation Systems (BAS) Johnson Control and Trane. The East Peoria, Downtown and North campuses all are controlled with BAS. The BAS allows the college to implement setback temperatures for all off hours. These systems are software based computer controlled systems that provide schedules for setbacks during evenings, holidays, and weekends.

A brief description of any light emitting diode (LED) lighting employed by the institution:

LED lighting is used in exit lights, some parking lot lights, some classroom and area lighting.

A brief description of any occupancy and/or vacancy sensors employed by the institution:

ICC uses motion, dimming, and light sensor technology to reduce lighting energy use in the buildings. Restroom and several classrooms have motion sensors installed to reduce lighting energy use when restrooms are unoccupied.

A brief description of any passive solar heating employed by the institution:

New construction has brought more sunlight in through skylights and more glass used.

A brief description of any ground-source heat pumps employed by the institution:

A brief description of any cogeneration technologies employed by the institution:

A brief description of any building recommissioning or retrofit program employed by the institution:

We have a program in place that replaces the roof top units to retrofit the area and re-balance the heating and cooling system.

A brief description of any energy metering and management systems employed by the institution:

Heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting (indoor and outdoor) are controlled by two Energy Management Systems (EMS), Johnson Control and Trane. The HVAC maintenance staff has access to these systems to diagnose and solve problems pertaining to HVAC and lighting systems and to ensure the systems are operating as efficient as possible.

A brief description of the institution's program to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment and systems with high efficiency alternatives:

Over the past 5 years, the college has replaced boilers, air handlers and roof top units was more efficient units.

A brief description of any energy-efficient landscape design initiatives employed by the institution:

A brief description of any vending machine sensors, lightless machines, or LED-lit machines employed by the institution:

The majority of the Coke vending machines are Energy STAR rated. Also, the vending at the North campus has energy misers.

A brief description of other energy conservation and efficiency initiatives employed by the institution:

The college has retrofitted all of the lighting systems. Some of the restroom fixtures have been changed to more water efficient units.
