Water is too precious to use only once
GRU South Energy Center
The GRU South Energy Center provides all of the energy needs for the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital. It also:
- Uses reclaimed water in its cooling towers
- Is a highly efficient “combined heat and power” system fueled by natural gas
- Provides 3.5 megawatts of electricity*, chilled water for air conditioning, steam for heating and medical gas infrastructure
The GRU South Energy Center is the first campus-hospital energy center east of the Mississippi and only the second of its kind in the nation.
Water is too precious to use only once – GRU reclaims it, and the community reuses it.
