Johns Hopkins Installs CHP System at Student Housing Building
American DG Energy will provide on-site energy to Wolman Hall student housing at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md.
Under the terms of the agreement, Johns Hopkins will receive a portion of its energy from a 75 kW combined heat and power system (CHP), which will be owned and operated by American DG Energy. The university will receive a discount on the energy produced by the CHP system and reduce its carbon footprint.
American DG Energy will produce space heat and hot water for Wolman Hall. The CHP system will offset 67 metric tons of carbon annually and is part of the campus’ green initiative to reduce defined emissions and meet its carbon goals.
Johns Hopkins will pay only for the electricity, heat and hot water produced and avoids all capital, installation and operating costs of the system.
