Energy & Utilities

power plant

The Virginia Tech Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities is responsible for the operation of the university's Central Steam Plant and the Virginia Tech Electric Service.

Few universities serve the electrical needs of their surrounding communities; none to the extent of Virginia Tech and the Virginia Tech Electric Service. And, no other university supplies part of the community requirements from a university owned cogeneration plant.

The department is committed to operating both of these facilities in as an economical and environmental manner as possible, and is always working to improve our service for our customers.
