From our friends at the ISA…. 

Dear Friends and members of the Central NJ Section ISA


You are invited to join us for this plant tour on Thursday October 11, 2012 at 6:00 pm


Similar to a community of 13,000 people, Princetonconsumes chilled water, steam, and electricity for human comfort as well as its specialized research needs. Ted Borer will speak to the ISA about how those energy needs are met with three different cogeneration systems, thermal storage, steam and electric-driven cooling, and advanced commodities market tools.  The discussion will cover plant equipment and  control systems and the operating approaches Princetonuses to minimize both life-cycle costs as well as its environmental footprint. Initial results of the new 5 MW solar photovoltaic system’s operation will be mentioned as well as some projects that are currently underway or are still being studied.   For an advance look at the plant, you can see some tour highlights on YouTube:
