Join us for a tour of Lake Source Cooling with Cornell Director of Utilities, Lanny Joyce! 

Lake Source Cooling is one of the most significant environmental initiatives ever undertaken by an American university to promote a sustainable future. With its startup in July 2000, Lake Source Cooling (LSC) upgraded the central campus chilled water system to a more environmentally sound design that conserves energy and utilizes a renewable resource, the deep cold waters of nearby Cayuga Lake. 

The renewable resource tapped by LSC has reduced Cornell’s reliance on fossil fuels. LSC saves an average of 25,000,000 kWh per year versus previous cooling methods, enough to continuously supply 2,500 homes in Tompkins County! This represents about an 86% reduction in energy use for campus cooling.
