It is the largest and most environmentally sound of its kind in the western U.S.

The plant will provide heating and cooling for 23 Sacramento state office buildings, including the capitol.

It uses 90 percent less water than the old utility plant, by recycling water in tanks that are seven stories tall.

The $215 million plant was funded by the sale of state issued bonds.
