Ground Up - Freihaut at power plant

James Freihaut at East Campus steam plant

Freihaut at the East Campus Steam Plant at University Park, where a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system burns natural gas to generate electricity, then captures the hot exhaust to make steam that further helps heat buildings on campus. The plant operates at 80 percent efficiency, much higher than a conventional power plant, where exhaust heat is lost to the environment.
