Cornell's Central Energy Plants (CEP) are capable of producing up to 38 MW of electricity. In 2009, Cornell began commercial operation of its 30 MW Combined Heat & Power Plant utilizing combustion turbine technology with heat recovery steam generators. High pressure steam is then routed to the back-pressure steam turbines where additional electricity is produced.
