A Greenprint for a Healthier World.

Web Abstract: 
The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) embraced a precedent-setting green policy, a greenprint for how environmental design and construction could be done. It mandates that all new buildings funded with at least half of the funds from its $2.2 billion Bond Construction Program be developed to fit Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. As a key component of the sustainability policy, the LACCD developed a renewable energy plan that included generating enough on-site, alternative power through solar, wind, geothermal, hydrogen-generation, and storage technologies at each campus to make all nine colleges energy-independent.
