SUNY as a system maximizes the Energy Smart New York campaign every single day of the year; after all, 97% of the state’s population is within 20 miles of a SUNY campus. As an economic driver in New York State, SUNY capitalizes on the opportunity to profoundly affect New Yorkers by instating smart, and sometimes bold, environmental goals.
This week looks to be the hottest of this summer. New York City is under an extreme heat watch and Upstate New York is sweating under the hazy and humid heat. It doesn’t help you much now, but if a heat wave this fierce hits you in a couple years at SUNY Cortland or SUNY Canton, you will be able to blast your air conditioner guilt-free, thanks to green energy initiatives at both those schools.
Today, we focus on recent campus initiatives that focus on the environment, as well as how SUNY System Administration is doing their part. So, if the heat is leaving you hot and bothered, bring the temperature down with some cool SUNY stories!
