Combined Heat & Power System to Reduce University Operating Costs

Print Friendly

March 1, 2012

GEI is an expert in Combined Heat and Power Systems (CHP), which is why California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo hired them to design a new CHP system for two dormitory complexes. The new system will provide electric power, space heating, and domestic hot water heating to students living in the dormitories through the use of natural gas fired, reciprocating engine-generators.

The implementation of this highly energy efficient system will help reduce the University’s operating costs and its overall environmental impact. This project alone reduces CO2 emissions by nearly 60,000 tons over 20 years — the equivalent of removing more than 500 cars from the road.
