About This Project
Texas Wesleyan University launched a $6.2 Million energy-saving project in 2015. The centerpiece of this project is 2G Energy's avus 800, a CHP that provides power to much of the campus spanning 83 acres.
The natural gas-powered CHP plant supplies 80% of the power to 80% of the campus while reducing the university's dependency on the public power grid. The new power plant includes a 250-ton absorption chiller, a new cooling tower, new heating boilers, pumping systems, and central plant optimization controls. The self-funded project will pay for itself in cost savings quickly. The power system is expected to save $377,000 and 5.9 million kilowatt-hours per year.
