Inlet District Energy
The project’s architect, SOSH of Atlantic City, designed the IDEC to reflect the character of Revel, allowing sections of the glass façade to offer views of the interior of the building, where the equipment and its theatrical lighting are the show.
Construction Specialties (CS) RSH-5700 Louvers help provide adequate airflow to the electrical generating equipment within the building. At the top of the building, the horizontal lines of CS Vert-a-Cade 301 echo those of the louvers below as they conceal vertical storm resistant RSV-5700 Louvers, which provide major intake and exhaust to the equipment while protecting equipment from wind driven rain. Revel Entertainment has since closed and there is much speculation as to what will become of the Energy Center.

PARTNERING TO CREATE CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS
The Inlet District Energy Center (IDEC) is built on a site leased from Revel Entertainment Group, adjacent to the Revel Entertainment hotel and casino. This $129 billion dollar, state-of-the art cogeneration plant recycles waste energy, provides power for the complex and emergency backup power to local area Inlet customers as well as reduces greenhouse gas. The plant was built to provide cooling, heating, hot water, electricity and emergency power to Revel’s 1,900 hotel rooms, 12 restaurants and 6 pools.
