State Senator James Seward has announced that $2 million in capital funding he secured will be used for SUNY Cobleskill’s energy savings project. More than 26-percent of the support New York State currently provides to SUNY Cobleskill annually is consumed in utility costs. Both Executive Order 88 and Build Smart NY require the campus to reduce energy consumption and, create an energy master plan and operate more efficiently. The capital funding obtained by Senator Seward, included in a 2014 senate resolution, will help the college meet the ‘green goals’ by supporting SUNY Cobleskill’s Energy Savings Project.
