SUNY Canton’s Civil Service Employees Union (CSEA) Local 603 has provided new energy efficient appliances for break rooms around campus.
Union President Joseph Kelly said that they had provided eight Energy Star-rated refrigerators and nine microwave ovens during the Fall 2009 semester. The purchases included a brand-new 21 cubic-foot refrigerator in French Hall, which came just in time for potluck holiday meals and on-campus celebrations.
The purchase of the new appliances is another step in a larger campus-wide effort to conserve energy. To read more about the College’s green initiatives, visit www.canton.edu/sustainability.
