(03/11/14 8:34am)

Shippensburg University energy costs are predicted to plummet, while savings will rise, as construction has begun and is scheduled to take place over the coming months on a new campus-wide $30.2 million water chilling plant facility and revamped natural gas-powered heating system. The project could save SU upward of $330,000 per year, and reduce its carbon footprint by 31 percent, according to the facilities management and planning department, which is working directly with the independent department of general services to oversee the project. The pipes from the current steam system will remain in place, saving SU nearly $10 million in its installation of the natural gas system, which will replace the current coal-powered steam plant. “They’ve been heating with steam for a long time,” said project manager Bruce Herring.
