Cleveland Thermal owns, maintains and operates the district heating and cooling systems for Downtown Cleveland.

The district heating system, which provides steam for heating and process use, has been providing reliable service to Downtown Cleveland businesses for more than a century. The steam is generated from both Cleveland Thermal’s coal-compliant facility on Canal Road, in addition to the Hamilton Avenue plant, a natural gas and fuel oil-compliant facility in the process of being updated with new natural gas boilers to service 100 percent of the system’s steam requirements by 2016.

District chilled water, Cleveland’s most recent utility, began operating in April 1993. This district cooling system provides chilled water that is used for cooling and dehumidification. District cooling’s efficiency and ability to flatten your facility’s electric load profile has made it a viable and popular solution for commercial space conditioning.
