Clark College’s facilities team shows dedication to education and energy savings
Clark College, a certified Green Business since 2014, was recently featured by Energy Trust for their energy saving achievements. “Sustainable is attainable” is the driving force behind Clark College’s Facilities Services team, according to Timothy Petta, director of facilities services. Petta manages facility maintenance and capital projects across the 810,000-square-foot college campus in Southwest Washington.
Clark College has worked with Energy Trust and NW Natural on more than 10 projects ranging from new foodservice equipment to tankless water heaters to high-efficiency boilers and even a custom demand control ventilation project. These projects have reduced the college’s use of natural gas by an estimated 30,100 therms annually, improved their return on investment and allowed them to implement additional campus improvements.
