Energy Efficiency at SUNY Canton Supports Build Smart NY Initiative

February 27, 2013


The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) on January 30 announced an energy efficiency project at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Canton that is projected to save the college more than $236,000 and result in the avoidance of more than 800 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. NYSERDA provided $383,000 in incentives which helped the school defray a portion of the implementation cost at its Convocation Athletic Recreation Center. It installed energy-efficiency improvements including insulation, high-performance glazing, lighting and daylighting controls, thermal energy storage, and energy recovery. This project supports Governor Cuomo's Build Smart NY initiative to increase energy efficiency in state buildings by 20% in seven years by strategically accelerating priority improvements in energy performance.
