Electricity

Electric power is supplied to more than 250 buildings on the Cambridge and Allston campuses though Harvard's 13,800 volt micro-grid.  Our team maintains and operates the University's manhole and underground duct-bank system.  The peak demand for our electrical system is approximately 40 megawatts, which is roughly equivalent to the power needed to supply 40,000 homes.

    Did You Know?

    Our electric system is 100% underground, shielding it from weather events and damage.
