Purdue considers public comment on Energy Master Plan

Public comments on Purdue’s Comprehensive Energy Master Plan are being reviewed by university administrators.

The proposal aims to improve energy efficiency while still meeting heating and cooling needs on campus.

A hearing was held last night in Stewart Center, allowing the community members to give feedback in person.

In addition, the university has been fielding written comments on the plan since it was made available to the public January 10th.

In the next few weeks Purdue officials are preparing to release an online response to the input they have received so far.

If the proposal moves forward as currently outlined, it would cost nearly $105-million over the next decade.
