ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state is making available $4.2 million for training programs aimed at reducing energy use in buildings.

The funding will be used for building operations and to instruct maintenance workers on best practices. It’s part of a broader statewide effort under the Clean Energy Fund to offer customized technical assistance to increase energy efficiency.

To be eligible for the funding, buildings, or groups of buildings, must have total annual energy expenditures of $1 million.

Eligible structures include multifamily housing, office buildings, retail facilities, colleges and universities, hospitals and health-care facilities, government buildings, not-for-profit and private institutions, industrial facilities, and public and private K-12 schools.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has set a state goal to reduce energy use in buildings by 23 percent over 1990 levels.
