Jack Cogeneration Plant is a combined cycle power plant that converts fossil fuels into usable electric and thermal energies for use at the Indiana Campus. Cogeneration is a name given to the process of producing two or more forms of energy from one source of fuel. The S. W.

The cogeneration process enables users to reach much higher energy efficiencies than traditional power producing plants.
