NYSERDA awards $386,000 for SUNY Potsdam projects


POTSDAM — Two SUNY Potsdam building projects received a little green for being green.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority awarded $386,000 in incentives for two projects that could save the college $130,000 and result in the avoidance of more than 692 tons of annual greenhouse gas emissions.

NYSERDA will provide $277,000 through the latest round of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council Initiative. The incentive will help pay for a new high-efficiency electric chiller that will cool the new building, an additional laboratory under renovation and other campus structures.

The authority awarded $109,000 to help implement energy-saving measures at the arts center, including an energy-efficient building shell to keep heated and cooled air inside, energy-efficient lighting design and a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system that provides air based on occupancy needs.
