L.A. Southwest College (LASC), part of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) has installed a 4-megawatt (MW) solar energy project on its campus. The system, which was designed and constructed by Chevron Energy Solutions will serve as a living model for students, allowing them to study renewable technologies as it relates to design, construction, chemistry and physics, the school said.

"We are energized by Southwest's project, as it gives us an exciting chance to highlight the District's commitment to building green and to developing a new pipeline of eco-conscious workers for the green workforce." -- Dr. Marshall Drummond, Chancellor, Los Angeles Community College District
