State and local elected officials, Suffolk County Community College students, faculty and administration will gather to celebrate the ground breaking of a two-story, 33,792- square-foot Renewable Energy and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Center on the Suffolk County Community College Michael J. Grant, Brentwood campus that will be the first of its kind in the state community college system. Fifty percent of the $19.5 million center’s funding comes from New York State.
The ground breaking will take place on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 12 noon.
The new facility will house laboratories and classrooms to teach installation, maintenance and repair of solar, photovoltaic, wind, geothermal and other green power technologies, according to Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay who said plans call for the building to be solar-powered with geothermal heating and would contain a prototype solar house on rails that could be used indoors or rolled outside to test various renewable energy materials.
