Citrus College receives sustainability award

Citrus College was recently granted an excellence in energy and sustainability award from the California Community Colleges Board of Governors. The Glendora-based institute won best innovative project for a medium‐sized community college district thanks to its ongoing outfitting of its educational development center, slated to reopen in fall 2023.

The center, engineered to be zero net energy ready, will house testing and writing centers, updated science laboratories, classroom spaces, and new sustainable and energy-efficient systems expected to drop the center’s total energy consumption from 12.1 kilowatt hours per square foot per year to 6.8. The work is projected to save the center more than 170,000 kilowatt hours of energy per year.

The college is working alongside Westberg White Architecture and Pezeshki Engineering, Inc., on the $14.4 million project. Approximately one‐third was funded by the Measure G general obligation bond while the remainder came from the Citrus Community College District’s capital outlay fund.
