Saint Peter’s College, New Jersey, USA, has appointed ENER-G to deliver a major energy services contract for its West Campus in Jersey City.
The project includes the installation of a 200 kW solar photovoltaic system across a number of campus buildings, together with a trigeneration plant to supply low carbon heat, electricity and cooling for academic buildings.
The college will generate its own 2454 MWh secure supply of electricity from two natural gas driven 160 kW ENER-G trigeneration units.
The CHP system, working in conjunction with a new absorption chiller, will also supply 13,110 MMBtu of heat – generating hot water for winter heating and chilled water for use in the air conditioning systems during the warmer summer months.
ENER-G will fund the $6.3 million capital programme with no upfront cost to the college. The cost is partially offset by two grants from the New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program and Federal Tax Credits awarded to solar power and CHP projects, totalling $1.86 million.
