A brief description of when and why the 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.


Source-site ratio for imported electricity:
3

Total energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Site energy Source energy
Performance year 0.05 MMBtu / GSF 0.12 MMBtu / GSF
Baseline year 0.07 MMBtu / GSF 0.20 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total source energy consumption per unit of floor area from baseline:
38.76

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:

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:

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 campus wide, minus a few classrooms.


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

We utilize Geothermal technology at our Olathe Health Education Center building.


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution:

none


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

We have had a policy in place since 2008 for Energy star Appliances. We have also updated most of our mechanical systems to efficient systems including a campus wide retro commissioning study with a $10000000 dollar implementation of high priority items.
