CES, a national leader in energy efficiency, power generation and infrastructure solutions, has been selected to identify, develop, design and implement self-funding energy facility improvements at College of the Sequoias (COS) in Visalia. The initial study will focus on an investment grade audit to identify areas of lighting efficiency improvement, HVAC and control optimization/retrofit. Particular attention will be paid to proper and adequate ventilation in both classrooms and offices to increase indoor air quality. PV solar power generation opportunities will be evaluated and implemented to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Implementing these projects will allow the District to increase indoor air quality, resiliency, safety and renewable energy usage while reducing deferred maintenance and energy costs.

Together these energy conservation measures will improve reliability and cost effectiveness while reducing energy consumption and cost. The project will fully comply with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Climate Change and Sustainability standards and goals.

Palomar College

Palomar College partnered with CES to develop a campus-wide initiative focusing on reducing energy consumption. CES implemented energy management systems, solar photovoltaic generation systems, HVAC retrofits and LED lighting upgrades. This improved Palomar’s stipulated annual energy savings (kWh).

City of Clovis

Since 2009, CES has partnered with the City of Clovis to develop, manage and implement cost-effective, energy-efficiency & renewable solutions. Over the past decade, the City has reduced its energy consumption and operating costs by over 48%. 

Santa Monica College

Santa Monica College partnered with CES to develop sustainable campus-wide solutions.  A wide range of energy management system upgrades were completed including ALC SN controller replacements, electrical distribution system/chilled water systems upgrades and more. 

Victor Valley College

Winning the CCC Board of Governors Annual Energy and Sustainability Award in 2013 and 2019, the Victor Valley College project saw several energy-efficient upgrades to promote energy sustainability on the main campus. With lighting, HVAC, zone modifications and more, CES reduced the campus’s energy consumption and increased their sustainability.

College of the Canyons

College of the Canyons (COC) partnered with CES to reduce its usage of electricity and natural gas while updating aged energy end-use equipment. From the beginning, COC has focused on an integrated approach in developing their energy efficiency and capital improvement projects.

Santa Barbara City College

Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) selected CES to focus on sustainable campus development.  Working closely with the Facilities and Campus Development Director at SBCC allowed CES to focus on reaching the campus’s energy efficiency and sustainability goals.
