This article describes how two institutions in the U.S. Southwest--Albuquerque Academy in New Mexico and Pima Community College (PCC) in Arizona--have implemented new energy projects on their campuses. Albuquerque Academy's one-megawatt DC photovoltaic solar array is one of the largest secondary schools projects to date in the United States. The array is located on five acres of land at the east end of the Academy's 312-acre campus. PCC's replacement of its Desert Vista central cooling/heating plant with a packaged modular central plant (MCP) allowed for installation savings, a fast-track schedule, and improved energy efficiency.
