Power Plant

Kent State University's Power Plant supplies steam, electricity, and air conditioning to the Kent campus. Since the University's early years, centralized steam production has been used to provide heat and cooling to the campus community.

Kent State University successfully completed its two-stage, combined heat and power project. Two generators were installed that together produce 13 megawatts of electricity and over 60,000 pounds of steam per hour which is distributed to the University. What makes combined heat and power efficient for Kent State is not only their need for power but, the fact that Kent State has a year round need for steam.
