About the Project
Construction of a 12,000-gross-square-foot building addition to the Central Power Plant will house a new combustion turbine. The 15-megawatt combustion turbine will reduce the university’s greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 100,000 tons per year, or halfway toward our university goal of reducing total emissions for the Ann Arbor campus by 25 percent. That’s equivalent to the amount of energy used by 10,000 homes annually, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The project will require a State of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality air emission permit and will incorporate all appropriate pollution control technologies.
This project is currently in the design phase.
