The Department of General Services’ (DGS) new state utility plant in California, US, has secured LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council.

The new building has been designed and built to provide safer and more reliable heating and cooling to state buildings, expand capacity, improve energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.

The plant features highly efficient gas-fired steam boilers along with cooling equipment outfitted with variable-speed electric chillers and cooling towers.

The new plant also utilises on-site renewable energy, including solar photovoltaic panels mounted in the parking area that generate power for the facility’s office and support areas, and domestic hot water.
