SUNY Purchase College’s Tom Kelly, Senior Energy Manager, will discuss NY’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), its implications, and feasibility at the college. Two renewable energy projects are guiding this journey: a collaborative approach consisting of approximately 20 schools and a community approach involving both the commercial and residential market. The session will include comparing/contrasting NY versus other state net zero policies, brief SWOT analysis of the CLCPA, and insights needed to make net zero a reality at the campus level.
