Texas College Installs CHP

Way-Company_Construction_450x300Texas Wesleyan in Fort Worth is renovating its Central Power Plant as part of a $6.2 million energy-saving project being conducted by The Way Companies. The power plant renovations are projected to save 5.9 million kWh per year and $377,000 annually on utility costs, according to the University’s news site.

A new combined heat and power (CHP) system will allow Texas Wesleyan to generate its own energy.

The CHP system will capture otherwise wasted heat from the engine and exhaust and turn it into energy to heat and cool the campus. The new power plant also includes a new 250-ton absorption chiller, new cooling tower, new heating boilers, pumping systems and central plant optimization controls.

Using clean burning fuels, the CHP system will generate a majority of the campus’ electrical needs, while also reducing dependency on the power grid.
