Trigen Atlantic Station currently serves eight customers at Atlantic Station, including an office building, hotel, residential units, retail shopping mall, movie theater complex and grocery store. Over the next 15 years Trigen Atlantic Station will expand the central chilled water system as additional buildings are constructed at Atlantic Station, which ultimately is expected to grow to include 14 million square feet of conditioned space.

"The acquisition of the Atlantic Station Community Energy System underscores Trigen's continued interest in working with real estate developers as they expand to new markets in response to demographic changes that are taking place across America," said Lance Ahearn, Chief Executive Officer of The Trigen Companies.

"It is clear that mixed-use developments such as Atlantic Station are a growing trend, and Trigen welcomes the opportunity to assist developers by providing financing and operating expertise for essential energy infrastructure so that they can concentrate on their core business.

"The Atlantic Station Community Energy System acquisition establishes a strong presence in the Southeast for Trigen and is consistent with our plan to expand Trigen's national footprint,"
