By developing and implementing an energy management strategy, MCC
is working to save money, protect the environment and reduce our
risks in a volatile energy market. Energy consumption produces the
most significant environmental impact associated with campus
operations. MCC recognizes there is a need to operate campus
buildings and equipment in an energy-efficient manner and to employ
conservation measures wherever possible.
What Is MCC Doing?
- As MCC remodels and retrofits our aging buildings,
energy-efficient HVAC equipment and lighting is being installed to
reduce MCC's energy consumption.
- A Green IT Team is working to reduce unnecessary energy use
- Variable frequency drive motors are being installed where
practical and as funding allows.
- All new construction is LEED Certified.
- The South Omaha Campus Connector building has occupancy
sensors installed to minimize lights left on where they are not
- Using real-time energy monitoring, the College is better able
to monitor and manage energy use across multiple locations.
