St. Cloud State University announced Tuesday their acceptance into two energy efficiency programs.  

One of the programs is with Xcel Energy which launched their Commercial Efficiency program in 2013 to help large commercial customers identify energy saving opportunities within their facilities. The program will also apply well-planned, long-term solutions to reduce energy costs. 

The other program is with state approved energy services firm McKinstry. The program will be self-funded by energy, utility and operational savings.

Over the past years, university officials have taken numerous steps toward a more energy efficient and sustainable campus environment. These steps included an agreement with the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment to be carbon neutral in 2035. 

The University's goal is to cut their $3.7 million a year utility costs by 20 percent.
