Document Description
The proposed project is the replacement of the Campus' existing cogeneration equipment with a new, 4.2 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled combustion turbine generator (CTG). The project is would enable the Campus to meet a greater proportion of the backup needs of the existing buildings in the central campus and the Biomedical Sciences Facility, which is currently under construction. The equipment would be installed in a new, system to accommodate the additional electricity production capacity of the new system and to allow for efficient switching on of backup power to new and/or different facilities. The project would require improvements to the natural gas supply to the campus to improve the reliability of pressure in the gas line that serves the cogeneration plant.
