Missouri S&T’s World War II-era power plant, which burned coal and wood chips to provide steam to the campus since 1945, was decommissioned this past spring to make way for a new geothermal energy system.

Now fully operational, the system provides heating and cooling to 17 buildings and chilled water to the majority of campus buildings. Under construction since 2012, it is one of the most comprehensive projects of its kind ever undertaken by a university.

Plans for the power plant and its iconic smoke stacks have not been determined.
