The City selected Constellation New Energy, an Exelon Company, for the $227 million design, build, commission and 10 year operation of a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant. Vanderweil serves as the Engineer of Record (EOR) and provides permitting, design, major equipment, construction and startup support for the new facility.
