Napa Valley Community College Greens Its Campus With Hybrid Cooling
Electricity Bill Savings to be Directed to Classrooms
“As a public education institution, we believe it is important to make campus improvements that both lower costs and promote sustainability in our community,” said
The Ice Bear system uses an efficient, sustainable ice-storage technology that shifts 95 percent of the on-peak electricity used for cooling to evening hours, when electricity from the power grid is cleaner, more efficient and less expensive to produce.
The project with Ice Energy is part of Napa Valley Community College’s continued commitment to renewable energy and green building practices. In
