Guam - The Guam Community College has been awarded a $1.28 million grant from the Guam Environmental Protection Agency/Guam Energy Office's in stimulus funding. The grant will allow GCC to conduct an energy audit, and install a building management system, install photovoltaic ground and street lighting, and retrofit campus buildings with energy efficient technologies.

GCC President Dr. Mary Okada says, "This grant will provide GCC with the capability to ‘go green' on our campus. The building management system will regulate the amounts of cool air needed throughout our buildings, and the photovoltaic lighting and other energy efficiency measures will reduce our power consumption, allowing us to save on operational costs".

This recent award is in addition to the $9.5 million that GCC received directly from the federal government under funding through President Barack Obama's American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
