Energy Initiatives

Green Campus

Reducing energy consumption not only saves money, but is good for the environment. As a result, in 2009, Lorain County Community College began taking aggressive steps to measure and manage our use of energy across campus.

LCCC adopted a strategic energy management plan after working with Mr. Peter Garforth and Mr. Bob Dehne, well-respected energy-management consultants. Mr. Garforth and Mr. Dehne visited our campus, and recommended many ways the College could reduce its energy consumption.
