The leadership of Santa Rosa Junior College has long understood the importance of forging a vision of education that combines instructional programs and sustainability principles. With nearly 3,000 faculty and staff and more than 33,000 students enrolled each semester, SRJC is one of the largest employers in Sonoma County, and is a major consumer of energy. Socially responsible, SRJC saves taxpayers money by applying conservation efforts that include recycling approximately 75 percent of its solid waste and by implementing energy-saving programs to help optimize the energy efficiency of its facilities.


SRCJ relies on its partnership with Syserco and the Alerton Energy Management System installed throughout its multiple campuses, to help meet their sustainability goals and to achieve their energy reduction targets.


The Culinary Arts Center features a sophisticated EMCS control design for the central plant, that leverages multiple protocols (eg., BACnet, Modbus) for the integration and control of the chillers; cooling towers and condenser & hot water systems.Additional energy savings is realized by integrating the Solar Thermal System and storage tanks into the central plant operation.Finally, a Variable Flow Kitchen Hood Exhaust system was designed and installed by Syserco that further reduces the energy consumption of the facility, while ensuring indoor air quality is maintained.
