Project Profiles from the Southwest Region

University of Arizona

The University of Arizona in Tucson, one of the top twenty research universities in the nation, installed CHP to save money: it nets the campus $93,000 per month in reduced energy costs. When the campus needed to upgrade six old, inefficient, and high-polluting boilers in 2002, it decided that upgrading to CHP was the smart way to go.

National Project Profile Search

CHP already accounts for nearly 10 percent of our nation's energy - numbering over 4,000 local, clean, and efficient systems and counting - and we have the potential for far more. The DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships have put together Project Profiles on over 100 individual CHP systems across the country, illustrating the diversity, benefits, operating conditions, equipment configurations, and lessons learned from these sites. Use the search tool below to find Project Profiles that match your own site's characteristics.
