Energy at CPCC


Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is committed to an efficient operation in support of the Charlotte Mecklenburg area. CPCC is very engaged in energy and water conservation efforts while maintaining the mission of education.

While many of the school's functions associated with the education process are energy-intensive, we have put in place many tools and practices to mitigate the school's contribution to reduce consumption, which in turn reduces its contribution to climate change, reduces its carbon footprint, and reduces CO2 emissions.

The goal of CPCC's energy policy is to create a realistic and comprehensive document that identifies energy and water conservation and efficiency as significant issues for the entire college community. This document details steps that will be taken to address these issues and reach the energy efficiency goals of the school. This policy will be reviewed and updated periodically as public awareness, management techniques and technologies change.



Any suggestions toward our goal can be sent to CPCC's Director of Energy and Sustainability David Valder at
