CHP Facility Approved in Springfield, MA
The Springfield, MA, City Council has approved Baystate Health Systems’ request for a special permit to build a $27 million combined heat and power (CHP) plant, according to MassLive.
The vote was unanimous for the plant. The hope is that it will save millions of dollars in energy costs while reducing release of greenhouse gases. It will be located adjacent to the existing power plant.
The story says that the power plant now in use is more than 80 years old and relies on equipment that is 40 years old. The project will involve the moving of a historic house to a new location, the story said.
Energy Manager Today this week discussed a CHP plant that has been providing reliable energy to Manhattan Beer Distributors in Brooklyn, NY, for five years.
