1) North Shore Community College has recently purchased hybrid Chevy Silverado truck. This hybrid technology improves the truck's fuel economy by 10% over a conventional pickup and reduces CO2.

2) The College has participated in the Division of Energy Resources' (DOER) facility screening process to determine the feasibility of installing photovoltaic panels at the College. In March 2006 DOER's consultant, Timeless Technologies of Exeter, NH, prepared a feasibility report for the installation of a 62.2 kW system at the Lynn campus. The report estimated annual energy produced kW ac of 74,726 with a first year savings of $12,171. The simple payback period will be 8 years. Based on the EOEA's and DOER's review of the report, Mass Development has included the College's project in its funding request to the IRS. If funded this project will help the Commonwealth meet its Million Solar Roofs commitment.
