The Architect of the Capitol (AOC) is pursuing installation of a combined heat and power (CHP) plant through a Utility Energy Services Contract (UESC) at the nation's Capitol Power Plant. The CHP project includes two 8 MW combustion turbines, a 1.5 MW steam turbine, and two duct-fired heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), meeting the majority of the steam load required to heat the Capital Building, National Archives and other government facilities in the heart of Washington, D.C. Additionally, the project will allow the AOC to meet Boiler MACT requirements and provide a plant system efficiency in excess of 75 percent.
