Brad Buonpane’s AP Environmental Science class at the high school welcomed Keith McCoy, director of Small Clean Power Plants (SCPP) of NYC Gas Turbine Operations for the New York Power Authority, for a 40-minute presentation on energy production and distribution. During his presentation, McCoy, who oversees the operation of 10 SCPP in New York, explained the processes of hydroelectric and natural gas electrical energy production to the students. Students also had the opportunity to discuss energy transmission and efficiency, focusing on the technology and regulations that have been implemented to reduce the environmental impact of energy production.
