State Funding Provides New Boiler Plant

23 July 2010 No Comment

The Ohio American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program has awarded Wittenberg statefunding$569,000 to replace its existing boiler plant, which will simultaneously improve the efficiency of its campus heating system and maintain the historical integrity of one of Wittenberg’s most cherished buildings.

The new boiler plant will replace a 40-year-old steam plant attached to the Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Center that provides heat for more than 70 percent of the campus. The proposed high-efficiency, dual-fueled steam generation plant will result in estimated annual energy savings of 19 percent and cost savings of $105,479. The system also includes two new HP Thermogenics steam boilers with dual fuel (natural gas and oil).
