Smith Cuts CO2 50 Percent
Smith College is in the process of replacing 60-year-old boilers with a single turbine engine co-generation plant. It is expected to pay for itself within six years and cut campus greenhouse gas emissions in half.
The plant, which will generate electricity and steam for heat, is estimated to cost $5.5 million, but will save $650,000 each year.
