The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), the nation's largest community college district, announced a plan to produce enough of its own electricity to take its nine campuses "off the power grid." The initial plan is to build enough photovoltaic panels to produce one megawatt (1 MW) of electricity at each of its nine colleges.

The District's sustainability practices have been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council, California Climate Registry, Global Green USA, and Flex Your Power. The goal of the LACCD's energy plan is to make each of the District's nine college's energy self-sufficient.
