Program Description

As a part of Cooperative Extension’s commitment to reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, in 2011-2012 the statewide Cornell Cooperative Extension Energy and Climate Change Initiative launched a new program to support CCE educators in reducing energy use in their Association’s buildings.

The Energy Savings in Extension Buildings empowered staff, administration, and boards to advance energy conservation and efficiency in Extension Association buildings.

Program goals:​​​
(1) Redirect money that Association’s spend on energy bills to core educational programming,
(2) Model energy and carbon reduction efforts to others in your community, and
(3) Build and share experience with energy efficiency with other nonprofits and small businesses
