Sustainability Summit

Dallas College is committed to achieving net zero energy use at all its facilities by 2050.

Net zero energy buildings are powered by renewable energy that is generated onsite. They will improve Dallas' air quality and help solve the climate crisis. For more detailed information, watch the webinar by Dallas College's Energy Manager Garrett Rosser and Gary G. Olp, FAIA and LEED Fellow.
