The University of Minnesota is planning to reinvest in steam and electrical power operations at the "Old Main" facility on the East Bank campus.  The plant is at 1180 Main Street SE, at the East head of the Dinkytown Bikeway Bride (Bridge No. 9).  The plant will use natural gas to co-generate steam heat and electrical power, and will reduce the University's carbon footprint.  

The University hosted initial information meetings about the project in August, 2011, and the design phase began early this year.  A permit application will be submitted to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency in January, 2013.

WHAT'S BEING PLANNED FOR THIS SITE?

COME TO THE PROJECT UPDATE ON NOVEMBER 15.

If you know others who may be interested, please post or forward, and encourage them to attend.
