The scope of the project includes the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the plant on property leased from the University for a term of 30 years, under a state approved public-private partnership arrangement. The 18-month construction project is expected to employ approximately 400 workers.The plant will provide natural gas-fired electric generation, chilled water, and steam for heat. The steam, condensate, and chilled water will be delivered to and returned from campus buildings via the new energy distribution system. The majority of the campus’ electricity requirements will be satisfied by the onsite plant, which will be designed to operate continuously producing electric power of approximately 5.4 megawatts. The plant will be located on Yogi Berra Drive, adjacent to the campus’ Car Parc Diem parking garage. The project continues Montclair State’s commitment to sustainable practices, as noted in the University’s designation as a “Green College” by the Princeton Review since the first release of The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges in 2010. In August 2011, the University completed construction on The Heights, New Jersey’s largest campus residence and dining complex. It was the first public-private partnership construction project to be developed under the state’s Economic Stimulus Act. This $211 million project employed 1,350 construction workers.
