McKeon House

In Fall 2010, Le Moyne opened McKeon House, an environmentally themed residence where students experience and demonstrate the affordable, relatively easy steps that make any middle-class home more environmentally and economically sustainable. Like the Le Moyne campus itself, McKeon House features include:

  • energy efficient appliances and furnace
  • water-conserving, low-flush toilet
  • native plant landscaping
  • recycling and green cleaning products

Future plans call for:

  • an herb garden and National Wildlife Federation standards for the native plants garden
  • rain barrels and a composting system
  • energy efficient thermostats and lighting
  • durable and environmentally friendly flooring
  • educational signage
  • new roofing and siding from recycled materials, as well as new insulation and double-paned windows
  • replacing the asphalt driveway and walkway with porous materials
  • investigation of renewable energy-producing features, such as solar cells or domestic windmills
