In building the new Susquehanna Center/APG Federal Credit Union Arena, the college selected the most energy efficient equipment available. The new arena consists of more than 100,000 square feet of building space, the largest single building on the campus, and consumes a tremendous amount of energy needed to light, heat and cool the building. By selecting high performance equipment, HCC received a rebate for more than $90,000 from Baltimore Gas and Electric. This rebate was used to help purchase the energy efficient equipment resulting in a no-cost agreement between the college and installing contractor.
