Being environmentally conscious often means acting in obscurity, but not at SUNY Cortland. Energy-saving decisions made by students living in residence halls soon will be difficult to avoid.
The campaign will fund a data monitoring system that will display real-time energy usage in every residence hall — ground zero for energy wastefulness — and the newly renovated Professional Studies Building.
Flat screens in campus buildings along with a College web page will show up-to-the-minute consumption figures, along with informative and practical tips, in the highly visible competition to be the most efficient.
Every individual can and will make a difference as SUNY Cortland races to reduce its carbon footprint. The 100 percent savings in realized energy costs over the next decade could be redirected to expand the initiative to all campus facilities. The earth-saving habits gained along the way will remain long after graduation.
