We are excited to announce that registration for our August event is now open! Please join MNAEP on August 21st to tour the U of M Combined Heat and Power Plant! The project retrofitted an old steam plant and now produces enough electricity and thermal energy to generate all of the U of M’s steam heat! It’s a great brownfield redevelopment project (legacy contaminants) and will greatly reduce carbon emissions.
The tour will begin Tuesday at 4:30 and will last approximately one hour. Please note, you will be entering an operating power plant – hard hats, safety glasses and hearing protection if requested will be provided but open toed shoes and high heels will not be allowed.
PLEASE NOTE:: Interested persons will need to email Mandy Bohnenblust (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Leslie TeWinkel (email@example.com) with your full name and date of birth. This is for security reasons and will not be shared with anyone.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
