Sustainability at STCC - Energy Star Purchasing

  • Adopt an energy-efficient appliance purchasing policy requiring purchase of ENERGY STAR certified products in all areas for which such ratings exist.
  • Springfield Technical Community College is required by Executive Order No. 484 to procure only computers, monitors, copiers, printers, and other office equipment that are Energy Star qualified, enable all Energy Star features upon installation, and establish policies and procedures to ensure that such equipment continues to operate efficiently during its life.  In addition the order, titled Leading By Example- Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings, mandates the use of energy efficient lighting, LED and/or photo luminescent exit signs, programmable thermostats, and motion sensors.
