When is a jet engine not really a jet engine? The East campus power plant answers this question by turning an engine turbine into part of a power plant that produces a substantial portion of the power needs for the University Park campus. More importantly this newly installed turbine is extremely efficient and lowers the environmental footprint caused by the campus. While Penn State is one of the largest consumers of energy in the region, the university and its community are dedicated lessening both its consumption of power and its carbon footprint. Paul Moser, superintendent of steam services at Penn State, describes the turbine and how it will continue to change the energy consumption landscape of Penn State.
