CUNY to Receive Over $520 Million in Energy Efficiency Upgrades
During Earth Week, Governor Cuomo announced that 19 campuses across the City University of New York (CUNY) system will receive more than $520 million in energy efficient upgrades. The New York Power Authority (NYPA), a Consortium member, will be financing and implementing more than $140 million projects at fellow Consortium member CUNY’s campuses, and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) is delivering $380 million in projects as part of its partnership with CUNY. The upgrades will span 19 campuses and include projects ranging from the installation of high-efficiency lighting to the replacement of outdated healing and cooling equipment. This initiative, which is part of the university’s Sustainable CUNY Conserves program, supports the Governor’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative and New York State’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030 and contributes to building a clean energy future for the State.
