Partner Profile
University at Buffalo, State University of New York (SUNY) is purchasing nearly 45 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable electricity, making it one of the largest purchasers of renewable energy of any New York State Agency. In 2002, the University became the first campus in the SUNY system to buy a portion of its electrical power from a commercial supplier of wind-generated electricity through the purchase of 1.5 megawatts (MW) from an in-state wind farm. In 2007, SUNY installed a 72 kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic system on its North Campus. In partnership with the New York Power Authority, a 750 kW photovoltaic system became operational in 2012 on the North Campus. Further renewable power systems are under consideration and finalization by the University.
