Figures needed to determine total building energy consumption:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Grid-purchased electricity 91,553.59 MMBtu 124,585.64 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site renewables 350.25 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
District steam/hot water (sourced from offsite) 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
Energy from all other sources (e.g., natural gas, fuel oil, propane/LPG, district chilled water, coal/coke, biomass) 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
Total 91,903.84 MMBtu 124,585.64 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year July 1, 2015 June 30, 2016
Baseline Year July 1, 2007 June 30, 2008

A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

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.


Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 1,775,278 Gross Square Feet 1,771,828 Gross Square Feet

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:
3.14

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.05 MMBtu / GSF 0.07 MMBtu / GSF
Source energy 0.16 MMBtu / GSF 0.22 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total building energy consumption (source energy) per unit of floor area from baseline:
26.57

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)
Heating degree days 4,206 Degree-Days (°F)
Cooling degree days 1,333 Degree-Days (°F)

Floor area of energy intensive space, performance year:
Floor Area
Laboratory space 0 Square Feet
Healthcare space 0 Square Feet
Other energy intensive space

EUI-adjusted floor area, performance year:
1,838,930 Gross Square Feet

Building energy consumption (site energy) per unit of EUI-adjusted floor area per degree day, performance year:
9.02 Btu / GSF / Degree-Day (°F)

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency (e.g. outreach and education efforts):

Through our PowerSwitch program, JCCC communicates energy savings and renewable generation efforts to the campus community. PowerSwitch programs primarily attract staff and administrators, though faculty and students are encouraged to attend. We also offer guest lectures that examine campus power policies and consumption to classes, k12 partners, and community groups. Information on our PowerSwitch program is publicly available on the JCCC website.


A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution (e.g. building temperature standards, occupancy and vacancy sensors):

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


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

We have completed LED lighting retrofits where feasible including stairwells, outdoor lighting, hallways, and some offices.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:
---

A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution, e.g. combined heat and power (CHP):
---

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment and systems with high efficiency alternatives (e.g. building re-commissioning or retrofit programs):
