SDSU Co-Generation Plant Tour

Thursday, November 29, 2012.  11:00 – 11:45 am.

  • SDSU Co-Generation Plant Tour – facilitated by Engineers Without Borders.
  • RSVP on their Google Drive Spreadsheet.  Contact Sarah Tuley for more information.
  • See how SDSU is able to co-generate most of its own energy twice as efficiently as utility energy.

Constructed in 1984, and expanded in 2003, the CoGen Plant houses two natural gas fueled Taurus 60 gas turbine generators manufactured by Solar Turbines and a steam turbine generator. With a electriccapacity of 14 megawatts, the plant currently powers almost 100% of the campus needs. In addition to electricity, the plant also produces steam for heating and cooling. An additional steam powered vapor compression unit is being planned to increase air conditioning capability.

Priority will be given to students who are members of Engineers Without Borders and MESA Green Academy trainees.
