UGI Performance Solutions (http://www.ugiperformance.com), a division of UGI HVAC Enterprises, Inc. (http://www.ugihvacenterprises.com), is pleased to announce the successful completion of their latest project - the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant for Messiah College. The ribbon cutting ceremony, held last week in Martin Commons, was attended by more than 60 key leaders to celebrate as the new project comes online, poised to save tens of thousands of dollars for the college and greatly reduce the campus’ environmental impact.
The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant’s system generates electricity on-site, utilizing heat recovered from normal natural gas fuel combustion and providing usable thermal energy for heating, cooling, hot water, and industrial needs. Brad Hall, President, UGI Energy Services, highlights the benefits of technology and locally produced natural gas in delivering these benefits, “The use of horizontal drilling has enabled access to many previously untapped natural gas areas. Being able to secure that natural gas right here in Pennsylvania instead of having it transported in a pipeline 1,500 miles helps the economics and is good for the environment.”
