CHP Installations and Success Stories

Several years ago the 294-acre campus of Central Connecticut State University was experiencing problems with its aging infrastructure. The University’s steam heating system, installed in 1950s-60s, was outdated and inefficient, as well as undersized for a campus that has seen significant growth and is continuing to expand. Buried steam pipes often ruptured, requiring costly repairs and disrupting pedestrian traffic. Few buildings on campus had air conditioning, and most that did had trouble with noise from the equipment.
