Last week, Gov. Cuomo announcedthat the state will award $1 million each to Bard College, the University at Buffalo and SUNY Broome Community College through the “Energy to Lead Competition.” The competition “challenged student-led coalitions from New York colleges and universities to design and develop innovative plans for campus and community-wide clean energy projects.”

Gov. Cuomo said:

“The ‘Energy to Lead Competition’ is challenging New York’s emerging energy leaders to turn innovative ideas into cutting-edge solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower energy bills and improve resiliency in communities across the state. I congratulate our winning students and faculty, and commend them for their commitment to helping to build a cleaner, greener New York.”
