UGA District Energy Plant

Athens-Clarke County, Georgia

This project included construction staking and as-built services for the University of Georgia’s District Energy Plant (DEP-2). DEP-2 is located next to the steam plant and serves the south campus chilled water district that serves Davison Life Sciences, Miller Plant Sciences, Aderhold, Forestry, Ecology, Snelling, the Georgia Center, and others in the area.


These DEPs were built to allow older, less efficient chillers in some of the buildings to be decommissioned, replacing their capacity with new, state-of-the-art chillers in a central facility. This strategy allows for additional conservation measures beyond just chiller efficiency. DEP-1 uses waste heat from the chillers to generate hot water for nearby buildings, and make-up water for the cooling tower is supplemented by harvested rainwater.
