EA-1740: Final Environmental Assessment

Thermal Energy Corporation Combined Heat And Power Project, Houston, Texas

DOE prepared this EA to evaluate the potential environmental consequences of providing a financial assistance grant under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act; Public Law 111-5, 123 Stat. 115) to the Thermal Energy Corporation to facilitate installation of a combined heat and power system (CHP), water chillers, and cooling tower at a district power plant that supplies the energy, heating, and cooling needs of the Texas Medical Center campus in Houston, Harris County, Texas. This EA analyzes the potential environmental consequences of DOE’s Proposed Action to provide the Recovery Act grant, Thermal Energy Corporation’s proposed project of installing and operating a CHP system, and the No-Action Alternative.
