The expansion includes a 48 MW combined heat and power unit, an 8.8 million-gallon stratified thermal energy storage tank, distribution piping and a new operations support facility. The U.S. Department of Energy funded $10 million of the project through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
