An energy center's design is getting some recognition, and its owner, Stillwater Electric Utility, couldn't be happier.
The Burns & McDonnell-designed Stillwater Energy Center project recently earned an Honor Award in the Energy category from the Oklahoma chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies.
The award recognized the design firm for helping the utility build a project that can generate rapid, efficient and flexible energy to counterbalance fluctuations in power from renewable sources.
At its heart are three reciprocating, natural gas-powered engines connected to generators that can quickly spin up to generate 56 megawatts of electricity.
