Bucknell presently provides steam, electric and chilled water support to most campus facilities. All three of these utilities originate from Bucknell's central power plant and are delivered to campus via underground distribution systems.

The power plant is located on the corner of River Road and Seventh Street and can be see here on Bucknell's map and here on Google maps.

In the above picture:

  • The new cogeneration addition with a 5 megawatt natural gas/oil turbine inside.
  • The original brick housing containing the waste heat boiler and two package water tube boilers.
  • The chilled water plant (appended to the original brick building.)
