The mission of the Pacific Union College cogeneration plant is to provide economical and reliable electric power and steam to the PUC campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Due to rising costs of utilities, PUC made the decision to set up the cogeneration plant in 2003 to reduce operating costs and to enhance the level of power reliability to the campus. Prior to the commission of the cogeneration plant, the college received all of its electricity from PG&E. The steam being used on campus was produced by a direct fire boiler at the PUC heating plant. A collaboration between PUC plant services, Ipower-tech, Patch Services, Coen had the plant operational in early 2006.
The cogeneration plant at PUC utilizes a workforce of student operators to manage the plant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For student employment opportunities contact visit our PUC's Student Employment page.
