In line with the UH Strategic Plan, Goal 5,"acquire, allocate, and manage the resources needed to achieve success and exercise exemplary stewardship over University assets," UHCC entered a performance contract with Johnson Controls to implement multiple conservation measures and a sustainability curriculum customized for UHCC students. The energy efficiency solutions for O'ahu campuses are expected to create combined energy savings of over $58 million of the 20-year life of the contract. Energy solutions designed to reduce the amount of electricity, water, wastewater and Syngas usage are being implemented at Honolulu, Kapi'olani, Leeward and Windward Community Colleges through this contract. Energy efficient plans call for HVAC replacements, solar hot water, lighting retrofits, a full-time energy manager and electrical car charging stations to reduce fossil fuel usage. The neighbor island campuses have also entered into similar performance-based contracts with other vendors with the same objective of saving on energy costs, and implementing conservation measures.

In addition to this system-wide approach, individual campuses have been actively pursuing other sustainability projects. We've highlighted a few of the programs and projects that are now being implemented at the community colleges.
