Salt Lake Community College has increasingly been relying on solar technology to power some of its buildings. Currently the roofs of the Lifetime Activities Center, Science and Industry building and the new Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center have solar panels, helping to reduce those buildings' carbon footprint. We use energy management software to track energy usage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, SLCC has LED retrofitting programs, EV charging stations, and implements HVAC upgrades.
