Gas cogeneration plant also provides heating and cooling for roughly 180 buildings.
The heart of the Princeton microgrid is the cogeneration plant (center), which was constructed in 1996. The plant produces electricity as well as steam used for heat, hot water and sterilization. The plant also runs the industrial “chillers” that cool the 2.6 million gallons of water used to cool campus buildings and research instruments such as computer servers, lasers and medical scanners.
