The central energy plant utilizes a state-of-the-art cogeneration plant with primary power provided by a natural gas generator. Generator waste heat produces 20% of the campus’ chilled water via an absorption chiller. In addition, upgrades were made to the campus-wide security electronics backbone providing redundancy and consistency, and a second, existing kitchen was renovated.
