Union College COGEN is an addition to the campus’s existing facilities building. The new $12 million, 3,368 SF cogeneration plant will supply a majority of the school’s power. In the winter it will produce 82 percent of the power demand, and 74 percent in the summer. The precast concrete building assimilates to the campus’s historical architectural style with a series of arches on the main façade. The building facade mirrors the hockey rink and football stadium across the street. The classroom space on the second floor of the building overlooks the Heat Recovery Steam Generator and provides an opportunity for student groups to visualize, engage, and learn about the cogeneration process.
