New Generation for Downtown Lansing
The Lansing Board of Water & Light has proposed a natural gas-fired combined-cycle cogeneration plant for the city’s Reo Town business district. The project will produce electricity, as well as steam for the city’s 225 steam-loop customers. Replacing the coal-fired Moores Park Steam plant will reduce GHG emissions by 50 percent. The cogeneration electrical output will be 100 MW, and will be augmented by a solar panel array and wind turbines at the site.
