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

We chose our energy consumption baseline because FY2008 happened to be the last year JCCC added a significant amount of building square footage to campus and also prior to any major campus energy efficiency efforts being made.

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

Our building automation system has temperature setback programming that automatically alters building setpoints based on time of day and occupancy.

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

We have completed LED lighting retrofits where feasible including stairwells and some outdoor lighting. We completed a lighting retrofit to T8 fluorescent fixtures relatively recently and will continue to evaluate the financial feasibility of retrofitting to LEDs as market prices continue to decrease.

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

We utilize motion sensors in classrooms, restrooms, and various storage closets across campus.

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

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:

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

We have an Invensys building automation system that allows us to view and control energy, mechanical, lighting and temperature data in realtime. Energy use data is available on a per building basis. Temperature data can be viewed with detail down to the individual room level.

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

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:

Vending machines on the JCCC campus have a low-power saving mode.

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