Putney Sustainability Efforts in the Press
The July 2011 issue of Athletic Business features Fay, the bovine cover girl, posing in front of the Field House photovoltaic panel array by the Truck Road. The story about the Field House and how it came to be, written by Athletic Business editor, Andy Cohen ’79, is one of the best we’ve seen. Okay, it’s actually the best.
