Partner Profile
Raritan Valley Community College has its main campus in North Branch, NJ and has a satellite location in Bridgewater that we will be closing in 2016 when our new Workforce Development building opens. The college was the first community college in the U.S. to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the EPA. The college has received several environmental awards and certifications, including AASHE STARS Bronze certification, River Friendly certification, two sustainability awards from Sustainable Raritan, and a Governor's Environmental Excellence Award for Clean Air. The college has been running a cogeneration engine (for heating, cooling, and electricity generation) since 2008, commissioned a 446 kW solar array in 2011, and as of December 2014 is proud to be purchasing 100 percent green power. The switch was easy, inexpensive, and consistent with the college's environmental goals.
