Centennial Campus Energy Projects

Additional energy infrastructure is vital to meeting the needs of a growing Centennial Campus. Through spring 2019, several energy grid enhancement projects are underway to create capacity for growth, unparalleled reliability and cost savings. These upgrades require an all-day electricity, chilled water and steam outage on March 31 that will impact most Centennial Campus Buildings.

 

What To Expect

Localized outages on Centennial Campus are anticipated over the next year. Additionally, a major outage of Centennial Campus chilled water, steam and electricity is being planned for March 31, 2018 (rain date is Sunday, April 15, 2018). This outage, which will impact most Centennial Campus buildings, is necessary to make new infrastructure connections. Town Hall meetings will be held to gather information about the impact of this outage:

  • Town Hall 1: Friday, Jan. 5, 9 – 10 a.m. in Hunt Library Room 4106 (PDF of presentation)
  • Town Hall 2: Tuesday, Jan. 9, 3 – 4 p.m. in Hunt Library Room 4106 (RSVP)

Report any critical impacts to your Facilities Coordinator or through this online form. Deadline is Jan. 19, 2018. Any additional questions about this effort can be directed to the Facilities Customer Service Center at 919-515-2991 or facilities_service@ncsu.edu.

Why Is This Outage Necessary?

The energy upgrades on Centennial Campus will include efficiency-boosting technology that will reduce costs while also enhancing reliability and adding capacity.

UpgradeBenefits
Electrical Circuit and TransformerThis improves reliability by distributing energy on multiple circuits, providing redundant power and creating capacity for campus growth.
Cogeneration at Central Utility PlantThis enables energy generation on campus. By recovering waste heat and converting it to steam, efficiency increases by 40%.
Thermal Energy Storage TankThis allows chilled water to be created when electricity is cheapest and stored for use when electricity is most expensive.
Thermal Distribution UpgradesThis connects additional campus buildings to steam and chilled water supplied by the Central Utility Plant. This creates long-term savings and efficiency.

 

How Are Outage Dates Selected?

Outages will be planned in order to minimize disturbance on campus. The calendar below will be updated to include planned outages, as well as dates on which outages should be avoided. See the calendar below for more details.
