Central Power Plant Expansion

We propose the construction of a 12,000-gross-square-foot building addition to house a new 15-megawatt combustion turbine that will reduce the university’s greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 100,000 tons per year, or halfway toward our university goal of reducing total emissions for the Ann Arbor campus by 25 percent. The project will require a State of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality air emission permit and will incorporate all appropriate pollution control technologies.
